    I'd like to have kids one day, I dont think much about it because my career is first. I can't imagine having a child living off benefits.

    honestly? Women are only in relationships to get money or power. So never for me

    I've been through the whole sleeping around phase, liked it but I'm much happier in a relationship. I'd happily get married now if my girlfriend was up for it, haha. Call it naive if you want but I can see myself being with her the rest of my life but obviously I'd happily wait a bit to make it seem less "you're so young and naive and you're not ready for it" etc. etc.

    I met my husband when I was 22 and he was 24 (October 2006). We got married when I was 25 and he was 28, in March 2010. By then we had been living together for 2 years 9 months, which I think is really necessary before marrying somebody. I would have never agreed to marry him if we hadn't been living together for a good long while!

    I can take or leave marriage, being in a good relationship in the first place is more important to me, and I'm not fussed about having a wedding so it's not something I'd put a time scale to. If I was to get married, I wouldn't even consider it without living with the person first

    The idea that most girls want to have kids when they're around 25 is scary enough - who wants to have kids that young? I'm only 21, but 4 years down the line would be way too soon for me! I won't finish uni until I'm 23, then I need to get a job so I can get a house with my boyfriend. We've been together for 3 years, but I can't see marriage happening until I'm over 25.

    Although my boyfriend is 4 years older than me, and it I want kids in my late 20s, that would make him mid 30s which he's not to keen on. We'll just have to wait and see, personally I don't think mid 30s is that old to be having a kid.

    Don't see the point in marriage and don't enjoy most weddings.

    After 2 or 3 years. I used to think I'd want to be with someone at least a couple of years before getting engaged, but seeing as I'm getting on a bit (21 now and with no romantic history/potential whatsoever!), I think I'd settle for knowing someone for a year or so! I'd want to be engaged for about a year before getting married, wedding planning time Depending on what age I end up tying the knot, I'd want kids a year or two later.

    I don't want to have kids until I'm about 30. Give or take a couple of years depending on my situation. I'd like to live with my partner for about a year before we plan to get married and it'd be nice to be married before I have kids Just before is acceptable So I guess I got a good few years yet
