    Welcome to the forums, wolfy24. Please remember to always capitalise the personal pronoun "I" and put a full stop at the end of a sentence.

    Please don't use an emoticon to replace a punctuation mark. If you want to insert a smiley, click on the icon.

    Please note that thread titles should include some or all of the words you are querying. A good title for this post would have been "If I have kids" or something similar.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Bhaisahab told you to end every sentence with a full stop (period), or another appropriate punctuation mark.

    In any case, there is no need to write a new post just to say "Thank you". It makes us think there is new information or a follow-up question and we spend time opening the thread. Simply click on the "Thank" button at the bottom left-hand corner of any post you find helpful.

    Re: Am i using the right grammar?

    Put a comma after kids. Also, use If I have kids/I will do, or If I had kids/I would. The difference is whether you think there's a good chance you will have kids (have/will do) or a small one (had/would).
