Cupid’s Advice:

Being a newlywed comes with a lot of new responsibilities.  Before adding raising a child to your list, it’s important to spend time together as a couple:

1. Getting to know your better half: Everyone takes on a new personality once you live with them.  For most newlyweds, living together might be a new step and getting used to your partner’s habits will take some time.

2. Save: Waiting on a baby helps the two of you to save for the expense of having children.  A lot of couples divorce because of money, so don’t be the statistic.

3. Grow together: Waiting on having a child means that you can both accomplish career goals and other aspirations together before bringing a baby in the mix.
