    Late 20's-early 30's definitely.. only thing is I wont be leaving university till 23, so with work and possibly post grad I won't be able to settle until like 25-26 but I'd like time to do my own stuff, if I find someone to share it with me along the way even better but I won't go out my way for it until my really late 20s once I've decided and done most the things I want

    After I get into and complete my Master's degree, along with several years of work. It's ridiculous to even consider settling before you have your life in order and before you have a financial and academic basis on which to build your future. Therefore, it would either be in my very late 20's or early 30's.

    Most likely never because love is something that either makes you or breaks you and I got the latter.

    I'd want to concentrate on finishing/settling into the Medicine degree, so then perhaps around 25. Though don't know where children will fit into this without a lot of effort, considering that the intense schedule would just continue. I would want to be an active participant in my own child's childhood, but that will be at some odds with my career choice. A balance must be found.

    However, on the other hand, "married life can be beautiful and fulfilling, and that it should be pursued, not delayed until your career is set and your problems all worked out. The blessing of marriage is finding someone to travel that road with".

    So who knows, what shall happen will happen.

    angelike1 I was 3 points away from the lighter green gem I've always wanted and your final rep on this pushed me into it! Yay! Thank you! :dance:

    Not untill I'm done with other ambitions.

    Besides, I won't be able to afford a family for decades anyway.

    probably early 30s. plan to have money and to be well on my way career wise by then. ideally, I wouldn't settle down in one place, I'd just keep moving around to different countries as an expat like my dad did though.

    Mid 20s. Why? Because my life wouldn't largely change. I'd still go out, but with another person. If I go to a party, it'll be with another person. Shopping and housing won't be a chore. I think life becomes easier.
