Sometimes, a decision that's even tougher to make than "Should we have a child?" is "Should we have another child?" -- and if the answer is yes, then the question becomes "When?" Sibling age gaps, AKA birth spacing, is a massive topic of analysis -- for economists, sociologists, the World Health Organisation, and most of all, parents, who must strategically weigh factors from finances, to their careers, to the annoying "clock", to the type of relationship they envision for the kids themselves. And then of course, the decision may not be in their hands at all, as it isn't like you can simply pick a date on the calendar and type in "new baby". It's very complex and very personal.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
