    I chose 1-2 years. Fiance is planning on looking for a new job after the wedding, so as soon as he has a job we are going to wait about a year for him to get settled, and then start TTC.

    We don’t plan on having kids at all, but if we did, we would  be like you and wait a few years. I was 25 when we got married, so I think we would have waited til I got closer to 30 to start (I’m 27 now)

    If I were as young as you are when I got married I totally would have waited YEARS.  We were in our early 30s so we only waited 9 months.  If I were in your situation, I would wait until my late 20s.

    Well….. Since we both are in our mid 30’s really any time after we got married. LOL it didn’t work that way. I actually ended up getting pregnant little before our wedding. I had just entered my 2nd trimester when we got married last month!

    We were married just shy of 6 months when we found out. We were going to wait to try 2-4 years after we got married, but we really didn’t try to prevent it. We are already pretty stable and own a home so we were really careless when it came to trying. I charted, but it was more to be aware of my body than to TTC or prevent. I figured that this may be the perfect time to get pregnant because I am still in grad school. It is not interfering with work because I haven’t started my career yet. 

    Plus, Hubby and I feel like there is no pressure for us to have anymore kids for a few years. If I would’ve waited to begin my career before trying, we would’ve felt the pressure. Now I can have this baby, finish my degrees, and start my career. I will probably wait another 5-7 years before we try again.

    ETA: We have been together for 8 years.

    We were trying for the last six months, with no luck.  So, we’ll be trying again in March; a month before our wedding.  Here’s hoping we have luck in March!!!!

    We are going to try about 5 or 6 years after we’re married. There is just way too much to do before we have kids!

    @NatAndTy: I totally agree with you! My FH and I are 23 and we are not planning on having kids for at least another 5 years. Everyone keeps asking us when we will be popping babies out and when I say not for at least 5 years they look at me like im crazy. I think people think because your getting married means you want babies right away. I want to enjoy my 20’s with my FH. I have way too many things I wanna do before we have some babies!

    I voted 4-6 years, but really it’s more like 3-4. I’m going back to school in September for another degree and it’ll be 3 years before I’m done. He’s done now, for good, and we will be basically on one income for those three years. After I graduate and have been working for a year or two, we’ll probably TTC.

    It’s not exactly ideal for us, but we’ll deal with it. That puts me at around 26 when we TTC (and it may not happen quickly, as I have PCOS which is a fertility disorder). So we’ll see when I ACTUALLY get pregnant. We’ll have been together for almost 10 years at the time we’ll probably TTC.
