i can't imagine that this is what Jesus intended when he invented marriage and children.

No worries.

I was a little stunned by deep's comment but now the thread seems to be getting back on track.

A friend of mine said that if getting pregnant doesn't work out, it probably wasn't meant to be. In that case, adoption would be the next thing to do - at least for me.

Pearl,

I hope you read my second reply, too.

Adoption is a viable option. I have two adopted nieces included in my 19 nieces and nephews. The adoptive parents could not be happier.


I have two sets of friends that both got triplets through in-vitro.

I have a very good friend that had a healthy baby girl at age 45, six years ago. She now has a 28 yr old. 22 year old and 6 year old.

I would have hated to have a 65 year old mother by my 20th birthday.

I did have a 65 year old mother by my twentieth birthday. It isn't the end of the world.

I don't think redrocks meant anything

if I posted a picture of this 51 year old mother, he would probably ask for her number.

No offense taken, I'm just saying it's far from unheard of. Looking around when I was growing up, there were more than a few 'elderly' parents, either because kid x came at the tail end of an enormous family, or because there was just the one (or two).

Of course there are difficulties after age 30, and, especially, 40... but it isn't an absolute.

Do you think your mother's advance age when she conceived you
has anything to do with your hair loss or need for corrective lenses?

yeah, that's an actual photo of me on the left, deep. In the nineteen sixties.

It doesn't necessarily have to be 30s, but many people spend their 20s playing the relationship game, and then "get serious" in their 30s. I'm a big believer in taking relationships seriously, which is why I've only ever had two serious relationships in my life. And why people in high school called me the old man.

There is always a trade-off when it comes to family planning, and for many (men and women) it's the trade-off between financial standing and children. Not an easy decision.

i know several people who waited until their very early 30s to have children so that they could be more established in their careers -- they are stopping at one child because, even though they waited, it's prohibitively expensive to have more than one child when day care is $1600 a month.

Ok, I know I'm going to be hated for saying this (and I know that in most cases a second income is needed for most families to survive), but why have a kid when you are going to put him/her day care?

Because you have aspirations that go beyond staying at home and raising children?

I went to daycare for half the day, the other half we were looked after by my grandmother. My Mom is an incredibly accomplished woman, a Professor, a published author, a public speaker. My Dad also worked full-time. I don't think I missed a thing by being in daycare - hell I still have friends from that time.

I want children, but I have zero intention of staying at home full-time.
