We won't be TTC for at least 2-3 years after we get married. I'm only 24 and while we both want kids (and me having become quite clucky in recent times) we aren't financially where we want to be prior to having children and we otherwise just 'aren't there yet'.
We got married 2 years ago and just started trying. We were originally going to wait until I graduated my doctoral program, but we're both 31 and I'm close to being done and we decided we didn't want to wait.
My first marriage, I got pregnant the first month after the wedding. This marriage we will not be having any more children Really depends on your financial situation, your places in your lives, and what you both want!
We are planning to wait a year or two before we start trying! I want us to be a little more financially secure before we bring a lil nug earth side since I’ll likely be staying home with them (daycare costs are REEFREAKINGDICULOUS), hopefully in a house rather than an apartment and have some time to recover $$ post wedding! COVID permitting we will be going to a family reunion on FH’s side in Ireland and Scotland so maybe we’ll start while we’re there lol
I'll be 27 when we get married, FH will be 25. I think we'll start trying within 2 years as I'd like to be 30 by the time I have my first kid, and I feel like by then we'll be in a good financial spot to start our family.
I think we'll be waiting at least a year or two after the wedding. We are okay financially, but after the wedding it would be a better time.
Hubby and I just got married June 4 and started trying right away. We been together 8 years and are 28 (29 at the end of the year) and 31. We didn’t want to wait anymore. Got a positive pregnancy test last month, 7 weeks today. I say start whenever it feels right to you and your partner. We discussed our plans to start a family last summer and both agreed we were ready right after the I do’s.
Been married for over two years now and still not wanting to try LOL
i've been having this convo a lot with friends lately since i am at an age where all our other friends and people we know are starting to. so the way i see it for me personally is that i love my life and i'm genuinely happy - i live a certain lifestyle that i really enjoy, which includes immense amount of freedom. if i wanna go to happy hour in a couple hours randomly, i can do that. if i want to travel next week across the country, i can do that. if i want to leave randomly right now just to hangout with friends, i can do that. i'm not saying i CAN'T do that if i had a kid but it would dam sure be harder/probably not ideal at all anyway. so it isn't the idea of bringing a kid into the world and raising them that scares me - it's the fact that i have to give up the life i have now or modify it extremely, that makes me genuinely sad to think about.
i wasn't one for wanting kids to begin with but when i met my husband and the years went by with him, i became more and more open to it. so we said in a few years we will reassess where our mindsets are about kids! because by then maybe i will be 100% wanting one! but as for now, i really love my life and lifestyle and i just can't give that up, at least not yet.
