I "get" what you are saying, but I also "get" why they do. For many, careers and education took center stage in their lives. Some don't get married until later in life. Other had trouble concieving. Not everyone can be 22-28, with a college degree, a stable job and house. For some people, "being prepared" in life (although you NEVER really are!!) is very important. It is the polar opposite of the 15 year old who is sexually active, KWIM?

I can understand your point of view, I can also understand why older people choose to have children. I don't think it is just age though, it is also health and energy as well. I know 80 year olds that are fitter then most 20 year olds.

I suppose it depends on your definition of old also.

Would you prefer they have them at 17 and let the average tax payer cover the cost? People dont age the way they used to. If someone wants to have their first child at 40 then so be it. If they are waiting to establish their careers, become more financially stable, or want to enjoy life on their own before they have kids, it sounds to me like a very sound decision. It beats having a bunch of kids before you hit twenty and expecting everyone but yourself to support them. If you want kids at a later time in life and I dont have to support them, go for it. Sounds like responsible parenting to me.

Why is it bothersome?  And why is it unfair?  What age someone decides to have a child is none of your business and frankly it bothers me that you drum up feelings about something that has anything to do with you.
