    I have multiple ovarian cysts… we havn’t used contraception since november… therefore could happen soon and could happen months from now. I’m 24 and he’s 25… I’m finishing school next may and he is a airplane pilot instructor.
    Only you know when its right or wrong to start.

    We were married at 24 & 30, I think we’d like to start trying within the year, so, before he’s 32 next year.

    I’ll be 23 next week [YAAAY] & FH is 24.  We aren’t sure yet if we want children of our own at this point.  We really enjoy our time together as just us & will utilize all of it until we feel we’re really [if ever] ready for children :]

    I’ll be 24 and the Fiance will be 23 when we get married. We want me pregnant about 5-6 months after the wedding! We want a big family and are definitely ready to start right after the wedding! 🙂 I can’t wait to start a new life and new family with my hubby.

    I’m 21 and he’s 28. We want to start at the earliest when I am 28+. I am going to wait so that I can finish school and get my career going.  We’ll see.. maybe we won’t even have kids

    We’l probably be 25/26 by the time we get married, and oh gosh, I don’t want to have kids until I’m at least 28. This might sound selfish, but anytime before then I just wouldn’t be ready to give my body up for someone else. I’d like to have my body, and my time to myself a little while longer before I make room inside it for a baby. There are so many things I’d like to do while I’m still young, and I wouldn’t be able to do that with kids. Fi and I would like to travel, we are pretty spontaneous, and we’d like to spend the rest of our “young” years having relatively untethered fun before we bring a child into the picture. And – if we have kids later it means I get to hold onto them when I’m older instead of being young and having empty nest syndrome! (I already know I’ll have attachment issues)

    I voted Childfree by Choice, because even though biologically I shouldn’t have children because of possible complications, Fiance and I could easily adopt, which is what I assumed I would do if ever I wanted a kid even before I learned of my health problems… child birth just isn’t appealing to me, and honestly I think it is freaky to have some living thing inside you (no offense to moms, I don’t think other people are freaky… in fact I love it when my friends have babies… I just don’t want something inside me… that part is what is freaky. The “inside me” part.).

    One day Fiance and I might change our minds, but I really really don’t think we will. Oddly enough I teach Kindergarten, so it isn’t that I dislike children… I just don’t want my own. Just never really had that desire to be a mom. We’ll see in 5 years or so.

    Oh, I’m 24 and Fiance is 26.

    I’m answering despite being a 27 yo bride (long in the tooth!!) I think in the next couple years we’ll get started–hopefully we’ll be lucky enough to have a child before I’m 30!

    I”m almost 24, my wife is 28. We want to start trying in 3-5 years depending on how quickly we accomplish our goals:

    -travel to some more places (England/Scotland, a cruise to the Caribbean, the southwestern US, maybe a couple others)

    -buy a house

    -build up our savings

    I’m hoping to start sooner rather than later but we’ll see.

    I’m 21, he’s 23, and we know we want to do some traveling and have time to be husband and wife before being mommy and daddy. I’m thinking kids around 29, he’ll be 31; we’ll have had time together and time to mature and become more patient as well 🙂 We only want one or two as well, also have them close in age, so definitely need that hubby/wifey time first.

    We got married last year when I was 22 and we are planning on TTC within the next 6 months or so. I will be 24 when we have our first kid if all goes as planned!
