Does anyone else have parents who are BOTH 'only-children' (no siblings)?

    My dad came from a family of 10 siblings (he is the 6th) and my mom only had a sister (my aunt) and together they only had me (only-child). What is worse that out of my dad's side of uncle and aunts, I was the only kid that by blood heritage that still retains my dad's last name. Sad eh? :(

    I think you'll see it much more common in the next generation. # of children is no longer a symbol of prosperity/status, and not everyone works on a farm...to utilize all the extra hands.

    I agree to an extent, but it's just that particular generation. Not something exclusive to a certain area. It's just the baby boomer generation. :p

    Now that I think about it, I know quite a few couples that only have one child. So I suppose having only-child parents will become more common with their generation.
