    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 am 23 and my fiance will be 24 when we get married and I think we will wait a few years. Why not enjoy your time alone together and get used to be together, then work on having a family?  We are planning on getting a dog before that also so we can make sure we can actually handle it. I would hate to bring something into the world and not be able to give it everything that we can.

    If everything goes as planned, SO will be 25 and I will be 24 (turning 25 the next month) when we get married. We would like to be married for at least a year before TTC, we want to enjoy being married as well as buy a house.

    Kids are just not for us. Our plans are to have great careers and earn extra income by renting out the other half of a duplex we’ll buy next year. Then we’ll be building a custom house in the next few years. Kids don’t fit anywhere in out plans. I like toddlers and younger but not older kids.

    We’re getting married 7/4/14 on our 10th anniversary πŸ™‚

    We will be married next September when I am 24 and he is 34. We are having our first pre-conception exam next week and we are planning to start TTC in August of next year. That’s the timeframe we agreed on, but I would be happy to head to the courthouse next week and start TTC as soon as we get the go from our pre-conception midwife. πŸ™‚

    I will be 22 and he will be 23 when we get married, and we have decided to wait until he has graduated and has a job. He has two years of graduate school after we get married, and I’ll be supporting us during those two years, so in 3 to 4 years when he is working and I can stay home. (He is planning to be ordained an Orthodox Christian priest, so finding a job will not be the same process/level of difficulty as it is for the typical grad student).

    I am 20 and Fiance is 29. We’ve already started the process of having children this Summer (since July). 

    We are both sure that is what is right for us now and we are in a good place financially. I am a full-time college student and green energy sales agent. He is an ex-Marine and law enforcement agent. He also lost children (stillborn twins) with his ex-fiancee so  the desire there is greater.

    I’m 23, Fiance is 22. In my heart, I’d be happy with a baby right now. But thankfully I have Fiance to keep me grounded and point out that we dont even have our own house yet. So we’ll probably start to think about kids when I’m around 25.

    To be honest, having children is the last thing on my mind right now. I’m 22 and my Fiance is 28 but neither of us feels a rush to start a family. I’m an actor and my work at the moment is great – lot’s of travel and exciting opportunities, but the one thing it isn’t is stable. My Fiance says he always imagined himself as a father one day but he knows that I’m a fair bit younger than him and I probably won’t be considering children for quite a while, which he is fine with. We’re both just happy enjoying being a newly engaged couple πŸ™‚

    DH and i got engaged when I was 19, married a few days after my 21st and are expecting our first baby! I’ll be 22 in 2 days, DH is a few months’ shy of 33. We are both out of college and I’ve been a CPA for a year. We’d met all our goals and felt ready! I’m so excited to start my family early, I’ve always been a few years ahead of the game (graduated with my Bachelors’ degree and the 150 credits needed to take the CPA exam when I was only 19).

    I’ll be working on my PhD, and that will be enough work without a bunddle of joy in the mix! We’ll wait until I graduate, which will probably around 26/27 πŸ™‚
