    I’ve always had one since I was an infant.  But my mom is German, so we’d make regular trips to see family.  Now I love to travel.  Though I don’t do it nearly as often as I’d like due to the cost.

    we have passports.

    Thinking purely from cost perspective, we are doing all international travels now (while we are young and have no kids) and we will do probably only domestic travel once we have kids.

    Yes but I didn’t get one until college. Used it for the first time on our honeymoon in fact!

    Yes, I’ve had one since I was fourteen and went to study abroad in Europe. I usually go abroad at least once a year for study/research (I study Romance languages & literatures). I also got my first Master’s in England. My family is middle class and not particularly well-off, but languages and travel has always been important to me and until I graduated from college my parents sacrificed a lot to send me abroad to study. 

    I understand the reasons for not having a passport, but I think the benefits outweight the bad. I’ve been assaulted in Belgium, got swine flu in Mexico City, got food poisoning in Bolivia, and robbed in Spain, but I keep going back because I’m so much richer for all my experiences. 

    The Mr. has one too now, because of me. We went to Montreal for our 1st year anniversary two years ago, and two weeks later his boss announced that he would need to leave immediately to spend a week on a special project in England. If he hadn’t had his passport, he wouldn’t have been able to go!
