I think everyone should wait 5 years before having a baby.

We waited 11 years. We wanted to take as much time as needed to live for ourselves and each other. When the time came we knew were ready to start living for some one else, our child. If you haven't been with that person for at least 5 years, you really haven't had that much time to be with them. 

I know it can work to have kids right away but I think if more people waited the divorce rates would be lower. Just my little theory!

 DH were together 8 years before kids (married 1). We had a LOT to do in life before playing mom and dad. Of course we were YOUNG when we met, so we had that time. ;)

Idk... We were together for almost 7 years, married for a little over 1 year before we had our first but that's us. If others want to start a family earlier, that's their choice.

I was married almost 3 years but with DH for almost 6 when we had our 1st. I can see how couples that don't meet till they're in their 30's wouldn't want to wait though.
