Pete Wagner and Ellie Wagner are a husband and wife who can be said to be very harmonious. They have the same vision about life, support each other, and rarely fight. Even though they have no children, Pete and Ellie still live happily. Until one day, Ellie had an argument with her older sister, Kim. When Ellie showed Kim a 5 bedroom house, Kim rejected the house.
Their argument became increasingly heated until finally Kim said that Ellie would never want to have children. Ellie was quite stunned when her sister said that. So far, Ellie has not thought about having children because she feels that she and Pete do not have enough money to raise children.
