    No kids for us! We're childfree by choice

    We want children, but we're not sure when yet

    We haven't decided whether or not we want children

    I had my first child when I was 3 days shy of 21. I’ll be 25 when we get married, and Fiance will be 30. We’re going to start trying right away, so I should be 26 for my second.

    We definitely want kids! I’m 23 & he’s 24. We’d like to have kids somewhere between when I’m 25-28. We’re just going to see when we feel the time is right to start trying 🙂 We’d like to have some time being married before we have little ones!

    We got married when I was just shy of 23 (by like two weeks) and he had just turned 23.  Our original plan was to wait a couple of years and possibly be around 26/27 when we had our first.  We got a little surprise though so we’ll both be 24 in July when our daughter is born.

    I got married at 24, DH was 25- we’re now 25 and 26.

    January will be 1.5 years after the wedding and that’s when we’ll start trying to make things happen. We will start NTNT in Jan (one month shy of my 26th birthday) – hopefully baby will be born when I’m 27 (depending on the month DH will be 29 or 30).

    But, we’re moving into a smaller place (2 bedroom) this summer to get ourselves out of debt. We should be credit card debt free by January which is why we set that start date. If we’re not, we’ll wait a couple of more months until we are. If we didn’t have debt we’d probably start this summer.

    I’m 23 and SO is 26. We’ll likely be married by 25 and 28 (or a bit older) and I definitely don’t want to start trying until I am about 28 or 29. No rush for us!!

    I’ll be 23 in a week and DH is 29.  I’m not sure what choice to vote for, since I’m super torn ATM in regards to kids.  When DH and I got engaged, I thought I wanted to be done having kids before I was 30 (something like 27-28) and therefore DH would be in his mid-30’s.  Some days I get baby fever and would love to have an LO around in a couple years, and other days I’m content with just DH and I and spending time with friend’s and family’s LO’s.  Guess we’ll just see where it goes…

    I’ll be 24 next month and Fiance will be 29 in Septemeber.  We’ll be getting married in October.  We will be TTCing possibly 6 months – a year afterwards.  FI is the one who wants to get started so soon after the wedding because he feels as if he’s getting old.  I have some health problems as well so it may take us awhile.

    We got married just before we turned 24.  We’re 25 now, and I think we’re planning on waiting at least another 2-3 years.  Fiancially, we could have children now, but with our student loans, it would be tight.  So, we’re going to pay those off first, then try for children.

    We will be married a few months shy of 25, and I want to have our first between 26 and 27 I think. He just wants to have a house and be married for a few years 🙂

    We got married when I was 23, he was 32, and we want to wait til late this year to start trying once some medical debt of mine is paid down. He doesnt want to be 60+ and still have teenagers in the house and I would love to retire early so we can travel, so it works out well for both of us to try asap. Plus I have baby fever like crazy so I don’t even know if I can wait that long 🙂

    I’m 24 and Fiance is 28. We’re getting married this year and don’t see children in our immediate future. It won’t be atleast for another 5-6 years until we TTC. I’d like to be 29-30. There are too many things we want to accomplish and experience between now and then. Having children would make it hard to do some of the stuff we want to do… Read: we want to be selfish for a few more years!

    I’m 23 and my Fiance is 24. I’d like to start trying for children a year or two after marriage.
    So that would put us around 25-27 and 26-28.

    We definitely want (multiple) kids, but we want to have some “just us” time first, so we’ll probably wait at least 2-3 years if not a little more. I’m 20 and he’s 23 and we’re getting married in July (ALMOST THERE!!). It’ll also depend on when we move from apartment to house, ’cause we’re definitely not having kids in an apartment.
