    We’re waiting about 6 months. So this summer. In a perfect world we’d wait at least a year, but we’re in our mid-thrities…so for me time is of the essence.

    For us since we’re in our 30’s waiting didn’t really make sense. We started almost right away.

    We’re starting this month, so 8 months for us.  I knew 4 couples (including us) who I graduated high school with that got married last summer.  2 are already pregnant and we’re about to start trying.

    I’m in my 30’s so we’re definitely not waiting 3+ years.  If I was in my earlier 20’s I could see that being reasonable.  We’re waiting about a year, only because we have vacation plans for this spring that where being pregnant wouldnt be ideal.

    Im 29 and Darling Husband and I have been together since high school. We waited to get married (though we’ve been common law for a decade +) for a ton of reasons (education, careers, housing, money, maturity, ect) but I was very adamant to not have children until we were. We were married in May and decided to start trying this winter…but the 1 time we missed being careful in Sept brought us this wonderful blessing. I’m due 3 weeks after our 1 year anniversary ๐Ÿ™‚

    Why wait longer? Because we want to travel (like, literally travel the world – 10+ countries), have the opportunity to change careers, possibly move to New Zealand, play around with starting up a photography business, and in general just have time to enjoy being married before we have a baby. I don’t really understand why people rush into that phase so quickly. You never get to be childless again once you’ve had the kid…and the world/life has SO much to offer if you’re willing to get out there and find it. (I am 28, if that helps)

    At least 5 more years while I get through graduate school ๐Ÿ™‚ Which would put us at 6+ years. However, I’m 22, so I have time.
