    We’ll start TTC a couple months after we’re married. We’ll both be 28, so we’ll probably have our first baby when we’re 29 or 30.

    “We” want to wait about four years after our wedding.  My fiance wouldn’t mind having them sooner, but I don’t want them yet.  We will be 26 (me) and 29 (him) when we get married.

    We’d like to wait another 3-4 years, possibly longer.  I’m in grad school and I’d like to be finished before having kids.  But it could be in my first couple years of the PhD program, depending on when would be easier (classes v. research).  If school weren’t part of the equation, we would still wait 2-4 years because we want time to enjoy being married just the two of us so we can travel and go out when we want.

    I’m 23 & he’s 25 right now (when we get married in June we’ll be 24 & 26).  I’m in my second year of law school right now so we want to wait until I graduate and have a job for a little while first… so probably about 3 or so years from now.  I personally would love to have kids sooner, but economically it makes a lot more sense to wait until I’ve been working for a little while.

    For us, we plan to wait 5 years and then decide if we are ready to start a family. I am 25 and dh is 26 so we’re in no hurry right now. We also want to complete grad degrees, be more financially stable etc before we have kids.

    We are 24 and 25 and we dont want to start a family until maybe 36/37/38….or 50 lol.

    We are in NO RUSH at all to have kids.  Our dream marriage is the DINK life (dual income no kids)

    Right now we are thinking we are not going to have children, but we agree to never say never, so we’ll see!

    I’m 26 now. I want to re-evaluate in 3 years when I’m 29. If we have kids I’d like to try at some point between 30-35.

    We’ll be 25 by the time we’re married next year. We want to have a kid before we’re 30 so we plan to TTC around 28. I have PCOS so I know its going to be a struggle so I want to make sure we make it happen before its too late.

    there needs to be more options.  =) I am a little older than Fiance so I want to start right away, but I think he could stand to wait a year or 2.

    We’re not in a rush. The good thing about being a step parent is that it gives you enough of a taste of parenting to decide whether or not you’re ready to take it on full time yet! We’ve both decided we want to wait a couple years, enjoy being married, renovate the house, travel a bit, then we’ll have kids.
