    I waited until I was 30. I'd been married for 3 yrs and had my career pretty established. I still felt too young for the lifetime of responsibility that parenthood brings. There's nothing quite like that moment when you come home from hospital with your first baby, and close the front door, and think 'what have I done?' Also, pretty humbling to be described on your medical notes as a 'mature mother', purely because of your biological age.

    lol at people saying some time in their 20s, and even those saying early 30s.

    In their 20s most people will still be making f*** all salary wise, and they'll be saddled with student loans too. If you try to start a family then you are going to have a bad time
    If not in your twenties or early 30s, when is the 'right' time?

    I'd have one now if the situation was right. Babies are lovely and I want one more and more each time I see one. Hoping to have one within the next few years

    mid 30s for men and early/mid 30s for women

    by then you're likely to be earning enough that raising a family is realistic, and you would had enough time to be young and wild and crazy (and are probably getting bored of it), plus this is also when you start feeling yourself getting older, so makes sense to reinvigorate your life with the adventure of children

    I'll just never be mature enough to be a good father (I'd try but they'd have a very warped sense of humour )

    I was 21 when I had my first one, and I was not ready in the slightest, but that's just the way the cookie crumbled.
