- Wedding: June 2015 - Victorian Gardens
For those of you who decided to wait until marriage to have children, how long did you wait? I’m talking about how long after the wedding did you try to start having children? I asked my FI about this the other day and he said 8 months after our wedding is a good time to start trying. I told him he’s crazy since we’ll still both be in school. Interested to hear your situations 🙂

We waited until we were married almost 2 years (a couple months shy). Right before we got married I went back to school, and am completing the program in February. I didn’t feel comfortable having a baby before I was done. Right after I was done would be super ideal, since I would be teaching and wouldn’t likely get a perminant teaching job until fall anyways. So we are currently working on our spring baby.

We waited until we said “I do” and now we will be married three years in November and I’ll be 5 weeks pregnant tomorrow with our first child :)!

Probably 2.5- 3 years after marriage and that’s likely only because i will be 30. We just bought a house and want to be able to fix it up the way we want to without having to think about the added cost of a child. Financial stability, job security and having a home are necessities to me before I even consider bringing a child into this world! Once you have a kid there is no turning back.

We are waiting for some medical stuff in order to TTC, and should be able to start shortly after our 3rd wedding anniversary. We got married in our 30s, so it’s not as though we have “all the time in the world”, but it’s the timing that is right for us.

We’re waiting one year after marriage. I’ll be in my last year of my master’s program but it’ll be the perfect time for us. We were going to start right away but we wanted to spend a year just us, go on some more trips, and finish a few renovatipons on our house. We’ll be 22 and 23 but already bought a house, have a solid savings, benefits, etc.

FutureMrsKap: 3 months after the wedding. We were married in August 2013 and we conceived in November 2013 after one try. We are expecting our first baby any day now. Fingers crossed she doesn’t show up on our wedding anniversary. lol
ETA: For the record, we are financially stable, and we didn’t carry over any debt from the wedding. Preparing for baby while bonding during our first year of marriage has worked for us. It’s not for everyone but we work really well together.

You should add a poll! We’re planning to wait a little over a year (if we can!!)

FutureMrsKap: We got married in July 2012 and wanted to wait a year. We ended up NTNP for a month (or two I can’t remember) and actively trying the month before our 1 year anniversary and got pregnant immediately.

We got married in December 2013 and we were originally going to start trying this summer. We’ve pushed it back to next summer at the earliest because like others, we want some more “us” time first and we have some house renovations that we want completely done before we bring a baby into the picture. I’m 30 now so I’ll be 31 when we TTC.

We’re waiting until our 3rd anniversary next year (I’ll be 28, DH will be 31), but we’ll have been together for 10 years. I wanted to wait until we had all of our debt paid off (except the mortgage), and I want to finish a major home renovation before kids. That requires saving lots of money, so that’s how we’ve decided. Also, I’m simply not ready yet!

We’re waiting for a little under 2 years (1 down so far), and we would probably wait longer except that we’re 32 and 34 already….
