THe chances are slim, and I believe there are so many other factors that play into it then solely father’s age. I’d have to read the research article myself – media does a terrible job at explaining research findings, and often makes them sound more causal then they are.  No, articles like that would not change my plans – they’d only make me more aware of something and cause me to research the issue further.  

That being said, FI is 34 and I am 26.  We plan to TTC in the next year beacuse he doesn’t want to be an “old dad”.  I’d wait a few years if I had my choice, but I understand why he is more eager to start having children.

2% is 2 in 100 babies. Do you know, say, 50 people with 2 kids? It’s not such a small number.

Dwarfism is also something that dramatically increases as a man ages.
