Cupid’s Advice:

Some couples think that after marriage, comes children.  Sometimes this is the case, but you have to make sure you are both ready for it instead of just jumping into it.  Here are some ways to know you’re prepared to have kids:

1. You are financially stable:  Having kids can be expensive.  Not to put a price tag on them, but you have to consider all of the purchases that would come from the day they are born until they are ready to move out.

2. You have a strong relationship with your spouse: Before making the big decision to have a child, you should make sure it’s a good time for both of you.  A child can help make your relationship with each other even stronger, but if it’s already in rough waters, it can end up breaking you up.

3. You are both settled down: When you first get married, most couples like to travel together and share some experiences together.  That’s why you need to make sure that’s all out of your system by the time you have a child.  You need to be settled in one spot where your child can grow up.
