    I always grew up with a plan of going to uni (made that) then I'd meet the women who'd become my wife then by the time I was 30 I wanted my first child. But...recently I saw an article on some news website saying "Average age of marriage is now 35. So since then I've felt like "Well...there's that plan out the window" Then I got a little curious...does anyone else have the crazy idea I had or does no one else want kids by 30?

    Ideally for me, mid twenties for marriage, late twenties/early thirties for kids.
    Thirty Five seems a bit old to me, people are normally settled by then.

    I always thought I would get married soon after leaving uni and hopefully have my first child by 27/28, just like my cousin.

    Unfortunately it looks like that won't be happening however, because I'm very single and alone, and not very desirable haha.

    I don't have any particular plans.

    I'd like to be settled with a husband and relatively good income before having children.. but as for the marriage itself, whenever the time feels right I suppose :dontknow:

    I don't really have a life plan, actually I'm not sure if I'll get married at all really. Just gonna roll with the punches and hope I don't end up homeless and enjoy life. Also I hope one day to build a replica of the Universe out of confectionary and doughnuts, perhaps the sun will be made out of Sherbet Lemons...

    People plan their lives so much, university then marriage then death basically. I'll marry someone when I'm with them for long enough to want to spend the rest of my life with them, I can't really put an age on that.

    pretty sure that's normal, although are you male or female? that would make a difference, and just because people want to be married by a given age, it doesn't mean they've found the right person or that that person want's to get married that early

    I'm not sure I have much faith in marriage.

    I'll probably end up like the otter woman who has about twenty otters and calls them her babies.

    Not sure I want to get married. No offence to those who do, but what difference does a piece of paper make? Not being married is basically the same without all the hassle.

    I want kids when I have a stable and solid career and feel I can support the child and provide him/her with all the opportunities I can.

    Never. But once I'm 30 I'm going to start looking into adoption as long as I've got a stable job, hope to be a mum by the time I'm 35 at the latest.

    They fall asleep holding hands so they won't float away from each other. Who wouldn't want an otter? :lol:
