There's no right age to have children. Some people are not even able to have kids. Some people find their spouses when they're already too old to have kids. So I must say that children are a gift from God. Whatever age you are, if you and your spouse are ready to have kids and to take responsibility of rearing the kids, then it is the "right moment" for you to have them. Even so, there's a chance that you may not have kids right away. Some people try for years before having their own kids, even they feel that they're ready to have kids already.

I dont really think AGE has as much to do with it as MATURITY, FINANCIAL STABILITY, MENTAL AND EMOTIONAL STABILITY and so on...Of course that doesnt mean that a rich, mentally/emotionally sound and mature 16 yr old should be having kids by any means....I mean though I know a few ppl who've had kids when they were younger than 19-20 and faired well I still think in alot of ways thats too young...but once a person is out of school..settled in their career and own place etc and are set with the above things mentioned then age really doesnt matter as much IMO

There cant within reason be a right or wrong age to have children, if you have them young then you have plenty of energy and time to enjoy them and if you have them when your older then you may have the financial stability to provide a great life, but no energy to run after them. I was 19 when i first fell pregnant, i'm 26 now and have 3 kids aged between 10mths and 6 years, and i wouldnt change it for the world.
