Okay, I'm right now 23 and I plan on getting married next year. I have decided that 25 would be a good age to start a family. The only problem is that my boyfriend thinks its stupid and wants to wait until we are 30!!! I don't want to be the old mom in the pta LOL! Anyways, we will both be done with college so i don't really see a problem with it. so my question is, at what age did you have your first kids? Do you think 25 is way to young?

So many great things instore for you my dear. U-r still young and besides your bf still doesn't want to tie the knot not until 30. You have to compromise. Don't push things hard on your boyfriend. Take things one step at a time. Life is great. Enjoy each other's company first. Enjoy life being single. . In no time for sure, it will come to you both. (",)

He must back up his answer with a reason in the first place. You can also argue with points like... 1. when you're 50, the kid will be 25, good time to retire and let your tid take care of you instead of being 50 and still struggling to pay for your kid's education 2. when your kid's a toddler, you wont be too old to run around the house to chase them or play with them 3. the chances of you getting pregnant will be lowered as you age, same goes for the guys.

I had my kids at a younger age than 25 and I'm glad I did because I was fit enough and young enough to do things with them, when they felt energetic! lol. I think 25 is a very good time to start a family. You're old enough to plan sensibly and not going past your prime time for becoming pregnant. If you leave it too late, say thirty and you don't fall for a couple of years, where will you be then? No, I agree with you on 25 being a good time. Brightest Blessings.
