Open discussion by parents and parents-to-be about child raising issues.
I'm already married and stable, currently in my senior year of undergrad, but I'll be almost 26 when I graduate and I plan to work for one or two years before grad school.
My husband is 11 years older than me and while we want to provide the best we can for our kids, we also want to have them when we are young enough to keep up with them. I have my own career goals and it's likely that I'll end up making more than he does. I don't want the timing to be too much of an interruption to my career or education, but we also want to have a child before I'm 30 or so.
There's no perfect time, but if there was, when would it be?
