My husband and I are newly married. We've been together for a little over two years. I never understood the saying "Enjoy married life before having children". I thought married life was suppose to be the time where you settle down and have already enjoyed "your alone" time. I'm ready! I want to start right away! My husband thinks we should wait a year or so. We both agree our main concern about having children now is the financial responsibility of having a child. My question is: How do you know your ready, both finanically and mentally?
Some say there is never a "good" time to have children, is that true? Is it worth waiting or should we enjoy life as early as possible and worry about finances as they come along?
I'm torn. I want to be a mom so bad but I want to give my children the best life possible. Will waiting provide a better life?
