Married for 1 year, me 29, husband 25...no kids, only plans to have them in 2-3 years.
Thursday, August 02, 2007, 4:06 PM
I'm 28 and people find it so weird that I don't have kids but I'm happy at this point in my life w/out.I love that my husband and i give all the attention to each other.
Thursday, August 02, 2007, 4:26 PM
why do you ask, OP? what's your story?
Thursday, August 02, 2007, 4:29 PM
just wondering cause people allways make comments try to say my clock is ticking..
Thursday, August 02, 2007, 4:31 PM
4:06 here. People give you the ticking thing? Weird! I don't think of it that way. I think it is very, very normal to not have kids at our age. Do you live in a suburban or rural area? I find that alot of "urbany" area people wait to have children until 32-36 ish. Having children at 24-27 still just seems so young to me! (I know that it isn't)
Thursday, August 02, 2007, 4:53 PM
28, married to 32 yo, no kids... at least 3 years in our future, if not more. I get the clock ticking comment often as well! Actually, I had one woman tell me my husband was getting old! Now that was funny!
Thursday, August 02, 2007, 4:54 PM
29, almost 30. Thinking about trying to have kids soon. I agree with the PP. I'm an attorney in Washington DC and I am one the first of my friends and similarly aged colleagues to be contemplating getting pregnant. I think women in urban areas tend to wait longer than those in more rural areas.
Thursday, August 02, 2007, 4:57 PM
27 married to 30. I get the "When are you going to have kids?" question a lot.
(A: when they stop being so expensive and obnoxious)
Thursday, August 02, 2007, 5:34 PM
24, almost 25, married for almost a year, first of my friends to get married (married 2.5 years after we graduated college, not like we were babies or anything!) I have a couple friends who have kids, but they were all accidents!
Not planning on having any for another 5 years or so.
Thursday, August 02, 2007, 5:47 PM
Ok, not in my 20's but thought I'd respond. Married, 41, no kids by choice. We're both very happy with our decision and have never regretted it. Family doesn't bug us either about grandkids.
Thursday, August 02, 2007, 5:59 PM
25 married to 26 year old. We haven't been married a year yet and get asked when we are going to have kids. Maybe in a few years because neither of us are ready yet. I want to try to be as financially ready as possible IF that is even possible.
My aunt tells me I'm not a spring chicken anymore and I shouldn't wait too long.. haha
Thursday, August 02, 2007, 6:34 PM
married 6 years, am 34 (going on 35), husband is 42 --- no kids!
Friday, August 03, 2007, 7:51 AM
I'M 28 AND MARRIED TO A 32 YEAR OLD WE HAVE BEEN MARRIED SIX YEARS
AND I KNOW IM NOT REALLY YOUNG BUT I FEEL WHEN THE TIME IS RIGHT WE WILL KNOW THANKS FOR ALL THE COMMMENTS!
Friday, August 03, 2007, 7:53 AM
sorry about the all caps on my last comment i know that bothers some people
Friday, August 03, 2007, 7:54 AM
I got married at 23 and have been happily married for 30 years. I was busy with my career and waited until I was 35 to have my first child (second at 39). Nothing wrong with waiting, or never if it suits you. Having children is a personal decision and it is YOUR life that is being impacted. One advantage to waiting is that we are much more financially secure. The downside is that the kids get asked by their friends why their 'grandpa' (but not grandma!) takes them to school.

Married at 25, now 44, no children, no regrets. Don't let anyone push your clock, its between you and your husband and when and if the time comes then that’s wonderful and if children aren’t in the plan for your lives then something else is, enjoy your husband and your marriage and if you both give your marriage the same love and effort needed to raise a child you’ll have a long prosperous life together.

married 26 no children
Saturday, August 04, 2007, 9:04 AM
I feel better after reading all the comments :)
Saturday, August 04, 2007, 2:32 PM
I'm 27 and have been married almost 2 years. We do not have children. We want them, just not yet. We just moved to a new state and really need to get settled in.
Sunday, August 05, 2007, 10:21 AM
I agree with the urban and rural thing. We just moved to a rural area and seem like everyon in my age group (and younger) has kids. My husband and I were surprised. I guess we were used to the more urban area, where everyone had kids later.
Sunday, August 05, 2007, 10:26 AM
I'm 24 husband is 21 and we've been married for 2 months. I don't have any children and never been pregnant. He don't have any children. Many people asked "Why are you getting married? Are you pregnant?" Just because we are young oh we must be pregnant because we getting married. I was engaged for a year and a half before I got married. Even though we are newlyweds we do plan to have kids but 2 to 4 years from now. We want to enjoy each other and we want to make sure we are financially stable and just have a child when we say we're ready.

26 married to a 32 year old. Waiting to have kids for another 2-4 years.
Sunday, August 24, 2008, 10:30 PM
36 now, but I know where you've been and I also agree about urban and rural views on when the time to have kids is. I live on the west coast and never plan to have kids. But out of my group of similarly aged GF's, two just had their first children. However my family lives in the rural midwest and I am the family wierdo for waiting to get married, and not wanting kids. Fortunately my parents are pretty kewl with it, but the rest of the family gets a little nosy sometimes. it's amazing how entitled folks seem to feel about commenting on such an intimate matter.

I was 28 and my husband was 30. We did not have kids until I was 33 and the second time at 36. Now, I'm 45. I always wanted to wait to be married and have kids. I think if you have college, career, etc... you wait to be established financially. Enjoy life, travel.....Money was never a problem. If you never want to have kids that is fine too.
Monday, August 25, 2008, 6:02 AM
42, never married, two kids, been in a 5 year relationship with a man that is the best thing that ever happened to me!
Monday, August 25, 2008, 6:10 AM
Married for 2 years, no kids, not for another 3 years.
Monday, August 25, 2008, 7:55 AM
I am 22 he is about to turn 28 we have no kids and we have been married for a year and a half!! Most amazing man on the planet!
Monday, August 25, 2008, 12:45 PM
58 and 5 children and happy with that choice. I have a lot more respect for those who think about their choice and realize that perhaps they do not want children. There are way too many neglected and abused children and too many self centered people. Not trying to put a negative conotation on the self centered aspect, but more of a consideration to the fact that some people realize they are. Also that is not saying that all of you who choose not to have children are self centered, just a "different strokes for different folks". Although some of you get swamped with the question of when will you have children, it is so much nicer in this day when we are given choices instead of assumed.
Monday, August 25, 2008, 1:19 PM
I am 27, my husband is 29 and we don't have any kids. We've been together for 5 years, married for almost 2. We are going to start trying though in the next year.
