In an old treatment, Ash's dad chose option one, so it would make since for Ash to do the same. Having said that, I do not prefer that option. Moreover many of the details in the that treatment have been dropped, so this may not have happened. I say that they should do option 2 for a few years, then settle down and start a family.
If Ash and Misty would be married, and Ash has a desire to travel, but Misty might want children, which of these options would you prefer?
1. Ash traveling without Misty, so Misty can take care of the kid.
2. Ash and Misty traveling together, no children.
3. Ash staying home, so they can raise children.
