Interesting thought.  IIUC I am older than you (by a decade or so) and what
influenced my group was ZPG.  I have many friends who had no children at all. We had
2. Only a few old-time friends had 3.  My brothers (14 and 17 years older than I am)
each had larger families. ZPG didn't have any effect on them at all.

What stopped us (in particular) was finances.
