@regberadaisy:I know what you mean. My Fiance and I have lived together for 3 years and have shared our money for 2.5 years. We know what it is like to share, be honest, and to compromise. I love reading the boards of the newlyweds who are trying to figure out how to live with and deal with their partner’s mess or whatever. I guess I never had that experience luckily. We learned to compromise very well. You don’t like how I fold shirts well then laundry can be the job for you! ๐Ÿ™‚ haha

We got pregnant a month before our 2 year wedding anniversary.

At least 4 years… and maybe forever, LoL.  Right now, we don’t plan on having any, but agreed that we’d reevaluate 5 years from now. :o)

We’ll both be 24 and we think we want to wait about five years.

I’d always hoped to be married 4-5 years before kids.  I was 23 when we started dating, so figured I’d be 25/26 when we got married.  Things don’t always go according to plan, I’m almost 26 and not engaged yet.  

It’s important to me to have a few years of just enjoying being married as a couple before having kids.  He’s a few years older than me, and most of his friends dated for 4-7 years, then went straight to procreating.  While it’s worked for them, I definitely don’t want that.

@flamingred – we are hoping for 8 hours! ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m 40 so we have to start right away! Since we’re older, we want only 2-4 kids (what we can’t conceive, we’ll adopt) but if we were younger, we’d definitely have wanted more, so we’d probably have started right away anyway…

We’re planning on waiting 2 years or so. We both want kids really badly but we are pretty young and also want some time to enjoy just being married before having kids since everything will change. We’re already excited though ๐Ÿ™‚

I thought about a year, but turns out about 6 months (was 3 months pregnant on our wedding day!)

We originally got pregnant the month before our 2 year anniversary (but that ended in a MC), so now we will be married for about 2.5 months before getting pregnant… if we get pregnant soon!

We are waiting a year after the wedding to start TTC, so if everything happens fairly quickly it will be right at 2 years when the baby is born.

We will have lived together just over 2 years when we get married, so no adjustment time needed. However, I am going back to school and will be done pretty much one year from the day we get married. So, for me, asap, but I don’t think we’re on the same page…yet. Wink

We’ll be 23 and 25 getting married. We’ll be waiting a few years for sure. We’ll have 2 years together then he will be moving to a job where he will deploy often. That will be another 2 years. I don’t really want to wait 4, but it makes the most sense. We haven’t made any hard and fast plans, but we’ll be waiting at least a few years.

We decided a year and 4  months before works for us lol. Ideally I would have liked to wait a year before trying but we both decided that we want kids and we decided to stop not trying and well 2 months later here we are ๐Ÿ˜€
