Ohhhhh yea!! Are we twins?? I’m 24 too and while I do want kids one day… in the future, I am nowhere near ready right now!

A lot of my reasons are similar to yours. I’m not really financially ready yet and the economy was not kind to me. I’m bogged down in student loan debt and have a much lower salary then I thought I would start with after graduation. (lame)

Owning a house is a big one. We currently live in a 2 family home. The couple on the first floor have 2 young children. I really do not understand how they live in a one floor apartment and yes, they are constantly screaming and running around. URGH. I refuse to live like that with children.

I do find babies cute… but only because I can give them back to their mom and dad at the end of the night. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Thinking about having a baby now makes me sick to my stomach. Having a baby and starting a family in 5 years brings a smile to my face.

 Sounds like you and your Fiance are doing the right thing for you guys.

I, on the otherhand am 23 (DH is 25) and we are blessed to own a home, have stable jobs and a good safety net…and we feel ready for kids soon. It’s definitely different for everyone.

I totally agree with you.  I’m 22 and while I do want a baby (everyone we know has a baby so I can get my fix that way but sometimes it crosses my mind that it’d be nice to have my own) I know we aren’t ready.  We want to make sure we’re done with school, have our student loans paid off, have a house, and have a big cushion of money and can be financially stable for me to take care of the kids until they’re in school.  We know a lot of people who just thought “Baby!” and now are in horrible situations with money.

i’m not into “the whole baby thing” either.  I’m almost 30, own a home, and have a stable job with a nice income; however, I just don’t have any interest in babies or children.  Fiance and I talk about having kids before I turn 35, so we’ll see…but right now I like my life the way it is ๐Ÿ™‚

Right?! I still feel so young. And honestly (as Fiance constantly likes to remind me) I can barely keep myself alive — it’s really scary to think about having something that is 100% dependent on YOU to stay alive. (haha, we don’t have pets…. I can barely keep a house plant alive)

I’m with you–we have two cats who, as far as I’m concerned, are our “babies.”

EDIT: Yours is SOOO cute! ๐Ÿ™‚
