    I think putting a timeline on things is a recipe for disaster.  It just sets you up for disappointment.  When I was younger I thought I’d be married around 24, baby at 26, etc etc.  Instead I wasn’t married until 30, and spent a few years feeling “behind”

    Ask my Darling Husband that question! He had a timeline, and I totally shot it down.  He wanted to be maried at 26, and have 2 kids by 30.  We were married at 28, and are turning 30 next year and no sign of little ones yet! 😉

    I always knew I wanted to be married.  I assumed it would happen by the time I was 30, but it didn’t really matter to me.  I DID know I wanted to wait until I was at least 25.  Oh, look what happened.  It sounds like SO wants to get married next year… at 23 years old.  D’oh!

    I think it is good to put a “soft” deadline.  If it doesn’t happen, no biggie.  It’s nice to look forward to the next stage in life, you know?  Something to look forward to but you shouldn’t force it.
