    We planned to wait a year from marriage. We have now planned to start trying this time next year, as I wato to try for a spring baby. However, I really don’t want to wait a whole additional year! We shall see.

    We waited to start trying a month before our one year weddand anniversary. We were ready to try right after the wedding but immediately after the wedding I started studying for the bar exam, so I wanted to make sure I passed and had a job before starting a family 🙂

    I voted a year to two years (from marriage – from when we got together, it would be over 6 years).  Depending on job circumstances in the coming months, it’ll be really close to our 2nd anniversary.  We could start as early as October, but it could be later if we need to wait for more financial stability.

    We feel emotionally ready right now, but I’m finishing grad school and DH just started his own company.  Not exactly the most stable financial situation right now, but with good prospects!

    Well I want one now, but that’s not happening. We plan to start TTC in 2.5 years, so about 1.5 years after the wedding. Timing is a big factor and we only have a few small time windows, so hopefully it will happen in one of those windows!

    We will have waited 5 or more years since dating and two or more since marriage.

    We will have waited 12 years of being together..  But we agreed to waiting for one year of marriage before we will actively TTC.   (11 dating, 1 marriage).

    We have been together almost 7 years, married for almost 2 years, and will begin TTC right around our 2 year anniversary.

    We waited 6 mos after we got married.  My age played a factor in this decision, if I was younger we most likely would have waited longer

    We will likely be waiting about 5 years from when we get married.  We will both be 25 on our wedding day, and want to spend the rest of our 20s just the two of us.  Plus we both want to have time to focus on our careers before starting a family.

    We will have been together 5.5 years when we get married and have known each other for over 10.  I will be 36 and he just shy of 36 when we get married so we will be trying immediately after the honeymoon (don’t want aunt flo showing up on that week!).  We will ahve lived together for about 2.5 years when we get married, no debt, plenty of savings, both have stable jobs, we are building a house that will be done this fall, so there is not much reason to wait in our opinion.
