- Wedding: June 2014
I’m 27 and my future husband is 30. We are getting married in a month and are not nearly ready for kids. Maybe in a 4, 5 years.
Had my kids when I was 20 and 23. It was hard at the time, but they’re grown up now. And let me tell you, hitting 40 and having a new lease of life was amazing! Plus I have two great young adults to share it with. Sure, we didnt have much money, but all young families have always been in the same boat. My parents, grandparents and so on. You get your time and money later on. I look at my parents now, retired and financially secure, and they didn’t have two pennies to rub together when we were young. That’s just how it’s always been.
These days, we do have more choices, and I’m not saying it’s bad to wait until you’re older and have money behind you – I’m just saying that it’s not irresponsible to do the opposite and start your family when you will have to make more sacrifices.
I really want to still be relatively young when my future kids grow up.
I turn 25 on Monday. And I thought I would have had at least one child by now. I wanted to start having them sooner. But it just wasnt in the cards for us at the time. The plan is to TTC this year though.
It’s always been my dream to be a younger Mom. I’ll be 24 when I get married and am hoping to have my first child at 25/26! I think it all depends on your financial situation and how stable you are. If you’re ready to make the sacrafice I think it’s a great idea.
We are planning to wait 2 years before we have children
I want to be 25 when I have my first child. My fiance is a year younger than me and wants to wait until I’m 26, but we’ll see! I don’t see the problem.
possibly unpopular opinion (based on facts): I dont believe anyone should make any life long choice such as marriage or reproducing prior to 25, the reason which not a lot of people are aware of is the human brain is actually not completely done developing until around 25 years of age. So much changes in your mindset between 20-25 as your brain finishes ‘growing up’ and your world view that i think its really unwise to make these huge choices prior to that point.
haha you’re not crazy 😀
I’m 23 now and will be getting married very soon. I’m thinking to start a family around 24-25 as well. hubby will be 30 by then, we both are so ready to have it now, but just want to wait a little after marriage.
I’m 25 and we are TTC! My DH is 29 and we’re just ready. We own a home, have no debt, both have awesome jobs… why not? I have young parents – my Mom was 21 and my Dad was 26 when I was born and I love having parents that still young!
We ll be 22 and 26 when we get married and hope to have children when I m around 25 and him 29.
Yes for some people that might be a bit on a young side but our parents had us at similar ages and I m grateful they had me then as I got a good 9 years with my dad before he died in his mid thirties and I want to give my kids as many years with their parents in their lives as we can. And I know it’s not always the case but I m hoping that being on the younger side means they ll less likely end up with some of the genetic conditions in our families.
We will be 22 when we get married and we would ike to have children at around 23
I had my first child at 22. And don’t regret it at all, but that a decision I made.
