How long was it "just you two" before you had children?

My LP started dating really young (in high school) and we were together about 7 years before our first LO...and that is by far the longest I've known anyone with kids to be together before the babies started coming lol

  • Not long for us, about 1year, 9 months. And it was never really just us two because I had kids before meeting him.

  • We had our son about 3 years after we got married (after about 3 1/2 years of being together--including the time we were dating).

  • Now I don't feel so strange. It seems like most of my friends have averaged 2 - 3 years from first date to first baby...but then again, it has taken them a little while longer to find someone and start thinking about babies where I started a little earlier on life plans. We are currently on "baby watch" for one of my besties who turns 30 this year and just got married in December. They were together a year before their wedding, and have been trying since then...baby dust!!...I can't wait for her! lol

  • We met in July, got engaged in August, married in Feb, and had DS in August, so about a year, from the time we met.
