>But I guess all such speculations are in vain when on the other hand I hear stories that women who do *not* have kids did not get jobs because the assumption was that "With that age and no kinds this woman is just looking for someone to pay her maternity leave". So I guess in the end you are in a fix either way; so you can just as well do as you please ;)
That is so true. One friend of mine has told me that she has problems to find CS work and she thinks that the biggest reason is her age. She is under 30 years and maybe an employers are afraid that she might get pregnant.
