Re: Late Bloomers--Pros an Cons of Starting a Family in your 30s

I was 30 when I got married and 32 when I had my daughter. I'd say that there are pros and cons to both having them earlier and starting later. I am much more stable that I was in my 20s and that includes financially. I didn't find the person that I wanted to marry until I was 29. I am much more patient with my 3 year old that I think that I would have been in my 20s. The main negative part for us is that I don't want to do the things that kids like to do like go to Six Flags or Disney. Rides make me throw up. I don't go outside with her as much as I should to play ball, run around, etc.
