    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 think  that 26 is the earliest for me and my Fiance. I know he’ll want kids whenever, but we bothe agreed 26 may be best for me at least.

    @the_future_mrs:  Also in the same boat. I’m 22, SO is 27 — we also plan to be DINKs. Our cats (and future dog) and our work will be our babies. I love my work and have a terrible dislike for babies.

    I’m 19 and my SO is 18. We’ll have a long engagement to give us time to both finish school, but we hope to start having kids as soon as he settles into a solid career. He adores children and though I’m a little more hesitant, I’m excited to be a mom someday!

    We have decided that we are going to get married, and enjoy being married for one year, and then stop taking birth control and stop trying not to get pregnant, but not trying to get pregnant…I will be 27 ish, and 28-29 when we deliver. This works for us. You have to talk to him and decide what is going to work for the two of you.

    I am 24, Fi is 32 We will be 25 and 32 when we get married and plan to start trying a few month after the wedding but we have to plan pretty strategically since he is in the military and we don’t want him to miss the birth but we also want him around as much as possible after baby is born!

    @Mrs.Enne:  I’m soo glad I’m not the only one with the um problems with child concieving. I can’t wait to adopt kids and just have a giant happy crazy wonderful family with my love. It’ll probebly happen 4 or 5 years after we get married. I’ll be around 30 and my debt will be gone. 🙂

    We are both 23 right now and we just discussed our three year plan ( We are weird but very efficient)

    In specific order:

    2013- Buy a House, Anniversary Trip Paris/London, Start MS

    2014 – Furnish House, Anniversary Trip Germany/Russia, Finish MS 

    2015 – BABY MAKING!


    TTC is officially on the schedule for start of 2015! I have crazy baby fever so it was a really good idea to sit down and discuss what our goals were for the next few years and how we would fit TTC into them. It helps me keep the fever in check.

    So I only have to wait 2.5 years to start TTC, hopefully we’ll be 26 and 27 when the baby comes. I’d like to be done having children by 30 because of health issues and we are plannignto have 2-3. Starting at 26 sounds perfect 🙂 I’m actually ridiculously excited to have a definite TTc timeline.

    @Mrs.Enne:  I want kids when I’m 30 but not past 35…hoping for 3 kids in those 5 years, which would be ideal because I want them close in age…however, I just found out I have cysts on my ovaries, so it’s going to depend on what my gyno says after I talk to her…sigh…luckily I’ll be 26 this year, so I have awhile to work things out

    I honestly think that having kids after 35 can be extremely difficult…even 30 seems a little bit older than what I wanted, but oh well…these days women are having kids in their 70s!!

    We’ll be 24 and 25 when we get married.

    We’re going to have a year of married life together before we start trying, so by the time it’s born I’ll be around 26. And we don’t want to have any kids in our 30’s (so we’re younger and fitter running around after them and our grandkids) so between 26-30 gives a few good years to get 2 or 3 kids in!

    I think age doesn’t matter though, it all depends on when you both feel you are ready. You could be 16 or 45!

    I’ll be 25 when I get married and he will be 26. We’ve been together for such a long time, we want to start trying right away.

    I’l probably be 27/28.  I’ll be 25 when we get married, and then we want to buy a house, travel to Italy, and be financially stable before we start TTC.

    I’ll be 23 or so by the time we marry, he’ll be 33.  I have no problem having children after we get married now that I have my education under my belt (will continue, but in a good intermediate spot ATM).  It’s important to him to have children sooner rather than later, and I love the little buggers and feel quite ready with where our life will be in 2-3 years.  However, if he were younger, we would probably delay until I had one more degree.  But I’m very happy with our life course, and I wouldn’t change it.

    I’m 22 and my fiance is 25. We will be married when he is 26 and I am 23. We are hoping to have kids within 3 years after marriage. So I will be 26 and he will be 29. But I honestly believe we will have children whenever God thinks we are ready.
