    We're planning on waiting "5-9 business years" haha, but we're honestly looking forward to just being husband and wife before becoming mom and dad too. We really don't want to have kids before we aren't living paycheck to paycheck either!

    We鈥檙e planning on waiting at least a year. We鈥檙e planning on buying a house after the wedding. My best friends are also getting married next year and I鈥檓 going to be part of their bridal parties so I don鈥檛 really want to be pregnant during that time. We also want to travel a little bit.

    We鈥檙e in the process of buying a new house (four bedrooms so we鈥檙e prepared 馃槈), and our wedding is in June. I鈥檓 a teacher but we really want me to stay home when we start having kids, so the plan is for me to work at least two more school years after this one, possibly three, depending on FH鈥檚 raises and other miscellaneous expenses before our first.

    I鈥檓 so excited because my husband and I just agreed last night to start trying in July when I turn 30. We got married in November. We had been indecisive and going back and forth but I finally made up my mind and he finally decided he was ready too.

    There is no fixed rule; it really depends on your circumstances. In my case, it was five years, because I wanted to finish law school and get started in my career first. Some people (particularly those who didn't live together before marriage) just want to have a year or so of married life to get used to each other before you have to get used to a third person. But if you're ready immediately after marriage, there is nothing wrong with that.

    We both want to wait 5+ years. I鈥檓 still in law school and I want to be stable in my career before we have kids. We want to adopt so we plan on starting the adoption process in our late 20s/early 30s, and we will be 24/25 when we get married!

    I want to wait 2-3 years to get my career going since I'm just about to get my master's degree. We don't want to wait too long though, because we're both already in our 30s.

    I got pregnant a couple weeks after he proposed 馃槀. But I鈥檇 wait atleast 2-3 years as long as your fertility window allows it. Gives you sometime to just enjoy being newlyweds.

    If I could I would wait a looong time lol. But sadly because of my age, i can't wait too long. We are going to try after a year. Hoping i'm like my mom and am able to get it the first try. But i do want to enjoy just being together before trying.

    We got married in August, honeymoon was in January, so we've been trying for about a month, now.

    But DH is 30, and I'm 36, so we are in "now or never" mode.

    4-5 years would be ideal! We'll be close to 24 when we get married and having or first child at 28 sounds like a good idea... but we all know how plans usually work out with kids. lol
