| | To have children or not to have children
I joined this forum because I have been having this issue nag at me since I got married. My husband and I are both in our early 30's working on advanced degrees and careers so between the both of us, we don't feel ready for children yet. On the other hand, all my friends and family are pressuring me, telling me that I should have kids soon because I'm getting too old, etc. It is getting to the point where I am starting to feel depressed that I will never have children or that we would just be better off planning a future without children. My grandmother was 42 when she had my mother so I know it is possible but I also know it can be risky.
Has anyone here ever gone through this or is living their life childless?
