    I am a bit confused. Your poll is about us, the readers, but you present your situation which are verrrry different. If someone REALLY wanted kids and was 40, I might say before marriage or right away, but you are in no danger of getting too old upon marriage.

    So are you asking advice on what you should do in your circumstance?

    my daughter had colic and id do it again. there are hard moments to every story but u always make it through. sometimes our head convinces us from what our hearts want. when your established career wise and settled i say go for it sometimes people set an age and are die hard for that limitation. take it more as a guideline not a minimum age standard (hope my rant made sense)

    me and my SO have a 26 year difference but we are still waiting for our second child because our lifestyle isnt set for another child yet so i DO understand ur situation and concerns remember guys can always have children for the most part. my SO has 12 brothers and sisters EEK!

    I’m in the 1 year range, Fiance is in the yesterday range.  We talked seriously about it over the weekend and have decided to start TTC 3-6 months after the wedding, as long as we have the money saved up that we decided we would save before TTC.

    I honestly don’t think I’ll ever feel 100% “ready” for a child.  I’d be waiting many many many years if I waited until I was ready!

    We waited two years, just over two years, and that was perfect for us!
