We got married when I was 24 and Darling Husband was 26, we will probably start TTC in 3 years when Darling Husband is finished school and our life is more stablized.

We’ll be 25/26 by the time we get married. He’s very adament about being a young dad and would like to start by the time he’s 27. I think we’ll probably delay kids 2-3 years after getting married in reality though. I’d personally like to make a big dent on our school loans, have a significantly bigger savings account (enough for a down-payment possibly!) and do quite a bit of traveling. That, along with a wedding, is A LOT to tackle in 4 years, so I’m not sure how realistic he is. We were at a picnic for his department yesterday, and I saw him watching his boss and his 3-year old son playing soccer together… Based on the look on his face, I think he would try for kids now if we were financially stable enough! ๐Ÿ˜›

I got engaged at 22, and we plan to marry when we’re 24. I won’t TTC until I’m at least 30. I want a stable career before I start to try, as well as wanting to travel a little bit more without children. lol But even though it’s a while off yet, we have realized that my fiance would be a Stay-At-Home Dad because I just love working too much to be happy as a Stay-At-Home Mom, and my fiance understands that completely and agrees to at least wait until I can support us plus a baby.

@walnutgirl:  Well I am in nursing, so I know a lot about the health risks and complications that increase for moms and babies after 30 years old….

 

However before I even entered nursing I knew I wouldn’t have kids after the age of 30, probably due t just being raised that way. My mom was 29 when she had me (3rd child) and I don’t know anyone personally who had a kid after the age of 30. I did have classmates who had much older parents and I always felt like they were are some disadvantage for some reason.

 

In MY OPINION, I personally feel having a child after the age of 30 is too old. Therefore, this is why MY FAMILY has CHOSEN to have our kids by the time we are 29.

We will both be 25 when we get married next June and we have decided to not start officially TTC until after our 1st wedding anniversary. We want that year to enjoy being married without planning a wedding or for a baby.

I would like to be 27 or almost 27 before we have our 1st child, as we want to pay down our student loans and buy a home before we bring a baby into the mix.

@misslillypad:  I guess I’m kind of a young bride (24, cutting it close!) and FH and I definitely want to wait. I don’t want to be one of those embarassing older moms who uses words like ‘funky’, but I also don’t want to be a parent before I’ve travelled and enjoyed a few years with Fiance and done everything else I want to do. I didn’t marry FH just to have kids and I want to enjoy our time together. We might never have kids, which would be a shame because I found a girl’s name I like the other day and it stirred my ovaries.

@misslillypad:  I am 22 and my husband is 23 and we’ve been married for over a year, and after some marital issues here and there, I can say that it’s good that we don’t have kids yet, but we would be pretty ready to. 

I really want to have a family younger, rather than later…I want to be finished having kids by 28…and I am fully aware of all the ‘living’ I would *miss out on*. I don’t see what I would be missing out on though, I live like a 30 year old.

We’ll both be 22 at marriage. We plan to wait 2-5 years. He’s the one who wants them sooner than I do, but we will see how that changes after another year.

Hi!!  I got married 12/1/12, and I will be 22 years old in November.  My Darling Husband turns 24 tomorrow (YAY!!!).  Darling Husband is in law school, working on his phD.  I am in CC, working on my AS for Biology.  If everything turns out perfectly, I won’t even start thinking about kids until after my Bachelor’s or Master’s is completed.

I would also like to have our own home by then, as we live with my IL’s.  It would be safe to say by time I’m about 26 or 27.

@Brace2014:  That’s interesting! Where I’m from it’s very unusual to have children before your 30s so I just find it odd to be so against it.

I guess I feel like age is a number and don’t see a huge difference between 29 and 31. 

Althought I see the health benefits of having children young I also see so many other benefits to having them slightly later.

To each their own ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m 27 and DH’s 31… I always wanted to have atleast 1 child before turning 30… but I now think having a kid in 3 years won’t do… time goes by too fast.

We have already made plans to pay off our car in 2014 and buy a house in 2015… then 2016 to enjoy… and depending on how we’re doing see if if 2016…

I really wish by then someone would come up with how to have twins so it will only be 1 pregnancy!

Soon-to-be Fiance and I are 22, getting married at 24, and as it stands now, we want to start TTC around my 26th birthday about a year and a half after the wedding ๐Ÿ™‚ But who knows!

Right now I am in this weird “Babies are so cute! But god I love naps and doing what I want on Saturdays and sleeping in and going out with the Boyfriend or Best Friend without a baby in tow…” kind of stage. So we will be living up the childless lifestyle for the next 3.5 years, but that baby fever will probably catch up with us REALLY fast after the wedding. Especially since my 21-year-old stepbrother and his wife are pregnant right now (he’s in the military and they married young.)

We’ll be 24 and 25 when we marry in June, and we’re trying to wait 2-3 years before TTC. However, we talk about it ALL The Time and none of my friends or family think we’ll wait past the honeymoon.

 

We want to wait because of all the (mostly financial) benefits of having kids a little older, but given that we’ve been actively considering TTC for quite some time now…I don’t know if we’ll make it past a year.
