DH and I married when we were 21. Though we would have been happy to start trying to conceive about a year after we got married, I had to finish grad school and we decided to take a few trips 🙂 Now we’re set on trying to conceive when we’re 25 so we can have our first baby at 25 or 26.
I wanted to hear from the young brides– when do you want to start having children? (Or do you even want to have children?)
I added a poll. If you already have a child/ children, vote for the age you were when you had your first!

Ill be 24 in a couple weeks and DH is 26. We want to wait about 5 years. So I will be 29 and he will be 31. We just have a lot we want to do. We want to pay down some student loans, There is a lot I want to do with the house. I just don’t have that urge to be a parent yet

We’re getting married when I’m 23, he is 25.
We’ve talked about 2 years to have a baby, so I’ll be 25 or 26, he will be 27 or 28. This is just our speculation though, we’ll see when it actually happens. I definitely want to have some childless married time together. There’s no rush for us 🙂

I’m 21, and Fiance Is 26. We’re hoping to have a child by the time he’s 30.

I’m 21 and Fiance is also 26. We’ll be 22 and 27, respectively when we’re married.
Neither of us want kids. We want to be “DINK’s” (Double Income No Kids)

My FH was quite seriously talking about having a baby as soon as we were engaged as “I would have had the baby by the wedding” lol.
But well pretty much start “trying” or at least stop attempts to prevent from the honeymoon (I’ll be 24 and hell be 25) as sad as it is my partners family has a long history of the men passing young (ie before they are 55-60) so he wants to be around for as long aspossible for his kids as he knows what it was like to loose his dad when he was only 19.

I voted 24-26 because we want to deliver by 25yrs+364days IF we decide to have children. (We’ll be 22 when we get married, so it gives us about three years to decide together whether to be CBC or to conceive.)
I would consider adoption up to 30-ish, though.

Right now we are CBC. IF we change our minds I cannot imagine having children until I am at least 30.

I am 24, Fiance is 28 …And we will start trying within a year after after marrying( June,2012).

I am 25 and Fiance and I start to try next year after the wedding when we’re 26 (almost 27)

We got married at 23, had our first at 25, and just had our second at 26 (27 in a couple weeks). 🙂

I’m 21 hes 24, we will be 23 and 25 when we get married. I will be starting a 3 or 4 year long graduate program the month after we get married. We will probably have kids my last year of school or in the next few years after that. So I will be 26-29 when we start. We want 2 kids.

We want to start trying by like 25. Hopefully we will have a house by then and good jobs.
Post # 15
I’d guesstimate 27-29. But probably no later than 28, SO is almost 12 years older and I’m pretty sure he wants kids before he’s 40.

We aren’t sure if we’ll have children. It’s been put on the back burner for 5 years. We’re both 23, hoping to be married at 24/25 and it’s not financially feasible where we’ll be moving to have children early in our marriage.
