Cupid’s Advice:

Deciding when to have kids is a life-altering choice.  Here are a few things to consider before starting a family:

1. Finances: Raising children is becoming more and more expensive.  Though your child may not be too much of a financial burden at first, in a matter of years you’ll be paying for things like your child’s college tuition.  Be sure that you and your partner have stable salaries before settling down.

2. Your goals: Though kids make your life happier, they can also limit you.  It is difficult to travel the world while caring for a baby.  Make sure that you have experienced what you want to experience before starting a family.

3. Outside pressure: With advancements in technology, women can have children later and later in life.  Don’t let your biological clock or your friends pressure you into having children.  The option will most likely remain open for quite a while.
