We will be trying immediately after we get married.  We both want kids really bad and I’m not getting any younger!!  I will be 36 when we get married!  We’ve done so much together already that we don’t see it as we need more time to ourselves before we start a family.  It won’t stop us from going places whether we take them with us or leave them with family.  We are both just really ready to be parents and just hope that we will be able to start a family sooner rather than later!!  I think it just depends on where you are in life.

We’re going to wait for at least 3 years.  I’ll be 29 and he’s 28 when we’re married so 32ish seems like a good age.  I love kids, but to be honest I’m just not ready to “plan” for one.  I mean, if sh!t hits the fan and I some how end up preggo, that’s fine.  But BC is my friend.

Funny, I just discussed this on another post.  We’re starting RIGHT after the wedding!  God willing that is.  Lots of people have said that’s dumb.  Spend time being married, but we’ve been together for 6 years, we’ve lived together for 5, we’ve traveled and finished school… we’ve done a lot!  And we’re just ready.  We even talk about babies names regularly lol.  We’re silly.

im glad other people think about this kind of thing..im only 21 and will be getting married in June. I actually had a miscarrage 1 year before, and now constantly think about babies, it drives me nuts. i would like to try for a baby after a year or so after getting married, mainly because i want us both to have stable jobs, save a bit to provide for a child.

We will be trying very soon afterwards I hope, we have talked about it and agreed on this but, who knows what could happen between now and then, my life is a little crazy like that, nothing goes as planned so I guess we will wait and see what the future brings us.

Dear Fiance and I have been together for over 6 years, it will be seven when we actually get married. We have had a house with a mortgage for 3 years already. When we get married he will be 31 and I will be a month away from 30. We are essentially married already and as well as getting married because we love each other, it is also to start a family. We have already been for genetic counselling and advised to start trying ASAP.

As soon as the wedding is over we will start trying.

I will be 28 and him 31 by the time we are married and we plan on starting after honeymoon. I’ve always wanted our first child before I’m 30 for a whole host of reasons, most personal. The Fiance & I will be dating almost 10 years by the time we’re married. Gosh we’re more married than most married couples right now! So I really don’t see us as missing out on “married life” by trying for kids immediately after marriage. But like I said we’ve been together for close to 10 years and have been “married” in our eyes and our family’s eyes for a while. So it’s different for us.

We’ll probably start trying about 6 months after the wedding.  He’ll be 37 and I’ll be almost 30.  I also have a family history of spinal cord abnormalities, so I don’t want to add age to my list of risk factors.  We’ll have been together close to 5 years at that time with stable careers and ives, so it makes sense.  But I think it all depends on where people are in their lives.
