    It probably started one facebook when I was younger, but for people around me it didn’t really hit much until I was in my late 20s.  I don’t know if I’ll ever really experience everyone having babies at once.

    @soontobemrsm11:  Engagements spread like wildfire about 2 years ago for me (22)- right around college graduation time. My friends and I joke that babies are in the water because there are so many pregnancies now, which also makes sense (24).

    The baby boom just really kicked off when I turned 30, marriage probably slowly built up to its peak 28-29….  Definitely depends on where you’re from.  I grew up in a city suburb and EVERYONE went to college and most pursued real careers from there.  Marriage came after people were “established” careerwise.

    I would say around 22 or 23 for me. I’m 23 now so fairly recently. Although now I’m part of that group who is now engaged/getting married, while a lot of my friends are not. Most are single in fact. No bombardment of babies yet though – I think a lot are waiting in order to get started with their careers now.

    For me it’s been really popping up in the last year or so. My friends and I are graduating from our universities this year, so it makes sense to start moving in the direction of marriage. I have a lot of engaged friends right now.

    Pregnant, probably 18. Although I knew tons of girls in highschool that were pregnant. But I only have a couple of friends that have gotten married or engaged yet, so that still hasnt hit.

    Most girls I went to school with had babies right out of school, and most of those got engaged/married around the same time. So 18-19. I got engaged at 18 and everyone thought I was pregnant.

    Only just got married 3 weeks ago and now all those people have 7-8 year marriages and school aged kids.

    For me it was around 19-21, but that’s probably because the friends I had at the time we’re a good 4-6 years older than me. Babies are the thing at the moment I’m noticing at 26, still doesn’t make me want one though lol
