    Married at 21, first baby at 22.  I wouldn’t choose to do that again.  I’d wait until I was at least in my late 20’s, established my career and waited until the end of my formative years.

    I’ll be married at 27 and we’ll hopefully have our first when I’m 28 it all goes well… So 1.5 years after we’re married. Since I’m going to be working at a school, I want to plan it to maximize my leave, but I don’t want to be pregnant during our wedding (don’t want to have to worry about morning sickness/bloating). Plus we’ll have more time to save. Fingers crossed our timeline works!

    daenerystargaryen93 :  your post 7 months ago asking when bees had their first child showed that 30-34 had the highest number of votes and many were older. I’m guessing you’re 25 or 26. Are you concerned about waiting a long time for marriage and TTC?

    I did everything backwards. I was 18 when my fiance and I started dating (he was 23 almost 24). We moved in together after just three dates. I got pregnant with our son at 21 and gave birth at 22 (at that point, fiance was just about to turn 28). We bought our house in January of 2018 and got engaged in June of 2018. We are finally getting married June 8th of this year! ( I am 28 and fiance is almost 34). 

    I used to have a timeline in my head of when I would get married, buy a house, have kids, etc., but none of my timeline worked out even close to what I was expecting. You can’t predict life. Go with the flow and things will happen as they’re supposed to.

    Married at 28 at probably at least 31/32 for kids.  

    It is interesting that your poll stops at 30-31, 31 is actually the average age to get married in the UK.
