well, I am older with a lot of little kids, and I will never criticize a young person for starting a family young! there are definate advantages to having a family at any age.
Tough question, but I think 25+ is good, too, with at LEAST 3 years invested in a committed relationship with the father.
When you're financially and emotionally prepared......the age doesn't really matter, so long as you're an adult.
i was 23 when i had my daughter, 22 when i got married. but my husband and i was dating for about 5 years before we got married. just because you are older doesn't mean that you ready. i felt that since we were together for so long we got to know each other very well before. husband had a great job and we had a house before too. just because you are 20 or 40 doesn't really matter anymore. its your life experiences, how long you have known this person for, your financials etc
When you have a financially stable home and are mature enough to deal with it.
I think age is irrelevant and having a stable life that you can afford to raise children in is the best time. Some people have their lives together early on, some do not.
This is my opinion: graduated from college and married. So *minimum* 23. Better after 25.
