- Wedding: October 2010
I think everyone is different and each couple should make the decision themselves. However, I do have to comment that your friend is a bit off on perspectives. It’s fine that she waited 5 years… she was in her early 20’s (as far as I can tell) when they got married, but it IS different when you are in your mid to late 30’s and getting married. I mean really? Thinking you should be 41 before you START trying? That’s just silly talk.
When my DH and I got engaged, I let him know that my biological clock was ticking and that I’d want to start trying right away if we wanted to have natural born children. He and I agreed that we were ready and off we went. Thing is that at our age, you just don’t know how long it’s going to take. I was 34 when we started trying, I’ll be 37 in a couple of months, and so far we’ve had one miscarriage and no sticky babies.
I guess my point is that if YOU are both ready, then just ignore your friend because the only timeline that matters is the one that you and your hubby set!
