Liss13:  We got married last August and have been together for almost 11 years. We plan on waiting another 4-5 years though (when I am 30-31).

We’ve been married for a little over 2 years and we will start TTC as soon as he gets back from his deployment..if he wasn’t gone we’d already be trying. So it will be about 2.5 years married before we try. We are both 25.

Liss13:  It depends as we are talking about moving up our TTC deadline to next month. If so, we will have been married for 8 months, together for about 5 1/2 years (we are 25/26). If we end up waiting until next summer, it will be 1 1/2 of being married and over 6 of being together (and we’ll be 26/27 at that time).

Getting married in August and my FI has been ready to try this entire year lol. We’ve been together 6 and a half years but we’re only 23. I’d guess we start trying next summer but will probably stop ‘not trying’ after the wedding. So technically 1 year after we get married I suppose! He has a job where we will always be constantly moving and shifting cities so it’s not like any certain time is better than others for us. We also want to have a big family so that’s why we would be starting so young!

We began just after our wedding. I was 30 and he was 37. We’d been together just short of 6 years at the time.

We got married a month ago and plan to start trying next fall. That would put us at a year and 3 months married with a baby due just after I graduate nursing school hopefully!! We are 23/24 with birthdays in a couple months. We want 4 children and want to be done around 30 so we have to get moving lol.

AF arrived the day before our wedding, so we had to wait 3 days after we were married. 

AKA we TTC right away.

We waited 3 months 🙂 We had planned to wait longer, but the more we talked about it after the wedding the more we realized we didn’t want to wait. We had been together almost 2 years (and lived together), but very close friends for 5 years, so we have a very strong foundation.

We will begin to TTC in July 2015, which puts us at 3 years married, 10 years together. (If it makes a difference, next year I will be 28 and DH will be 31)

Got married last July and while i went off the pill in September to “see what happened” we started focusing and timing things in March to really try. So 8 months. 

We’ve been together 5.5 years.

We got married in October and plan to start trying on our 1 year anniversary (though we have been NTNP for a couple months now). We are 25 & 26, together for just over 5 years.
