We’re both 28 (still young, right?) And we won’t be married till 2015 so I’ll be a week and a bit shy of 30. I’m not sure when we’ll start TTC as I’m currently studying and would like to work in my field for a bit but I hope that we can have a bub before I’m 33.

Engaged at 20; married at 21.  I have been married more than four years.  Do not plan to TTC until 2016-17.  By that time I will have been married seven or eight years, and we will have been togeher 10 or 11 years.  🙂 We both have stable jobs, make decent money, and own property.  I am just not mentally ready.  I want to live it up for a while!

I’m 22 and it’s at the end of our five-year plan!  We graduate from college in December, wedding is next fall, then we’re thinking 4-5 years after that, once we’re ready to purchase a home, we’ll start TTC.  I have a 3-year birth control implant so once we get that taken out we’ll decide from there if we want to do the whole “not trying, not preventing” thing or if we want to prevent for another year or two.  It just depends on finances!

We’ll be 24 and almost 26 when we get married, and we’re so not ready now so we’re thinking we’ll wait 3 years or so depending on what’s happening in our careers. We don’t want to wait too long because his parents were almost 40 when he was born (not exactly planned, they had 7- and 11-year-old boys and wanted another child but had given up on TTC and started to look into adoption) and we want to make sure their grandchildren know them. Plus my parents had me, their 3rd child, when they were almost 27 and almost 30, and I like having young parents.

I’m 25 right now and we dont want to have kids until about 28-30. We want to soak up just us time to do a little traveling and saving.

@misslillypad:  Fiance and I will be 26 when we get married next June and we plan on trying around our 1 year anniversary. So we will both be 28 for our first child if it happens right away.

Young bride & groom here (well, former, we are now husband & wife lol).

We are both 21 & have no intentions of starting our family for at least 5 years, but probably closer to 7 or 8 years. We are totally in the mode of finishing up our educations, getting set in our careers, and traveling (yay! my favorite part of the plant that we can’t wait to do!)

When we get married, we will be 25 and 23 (he and I, respectively).

He wants to start in 2-3, I would rather start 4-6.

Similar to PPs, I want to have my student loans paid off, travel freely, and just enjoy being a married couple before we add little ones to the mix!

We actually AC’d before we got married;) I meant accidentally conceived lol. I got mirena inserted this past summer so we are good for the next 5 years but Darling Husband and I decided that once I get it taken out we will start TTC for real. 1 is enough for right now because I am still and overload student in college. 17 credits every semester.

I’m 21, he’s 24, we’re thinking about kids in 9-10 years. No, that’s not a typo. We may or may not have them, given our financial standpoint once I’m around 30ish.

We both have been dating since i was 15 and he was 17…we are now 25 and 27. We want to wait till im 32 and he is 34. We both not in a rush at all to start a family right away and we only want one. By then we would have knowing each other 17 years…enough time to have enjoyed everything we needed to enjoy lol

We are planning to TTC after two years of marriage.  I will be 24 1/2 when we get married and Fiance will be 25.  He is still in school and will be finishing up a year after the wedding, so that is one factor–though the biggest factor for us is that we want to be able to have some alone time before having a child.  In other words, we want to be able to still be selfish. 😛  Also would like to add that we have been together for 7 years now (high school sweethearts) and own our own home.

I’l be 23 in a couple weeks and Darling Husband is 27 but probably not for at least 5 years, probably closer to 10. We want to enjoy being young and not having any real responsibilities. We just bought a house and will have that paid off in less than 5 years so definitely not before then. We didn’t even want kids for the longest time but are both warming up to the idea now. One of those things we’re planning on discussing when one of us feels like it might be time. We are also considering adoption, which if that is what we want to do we will have to start the process a little sooner than if we were just trying to have a bio kid.
