It’s nice when you get to that settled stage of your life. You have a steady man who you’ve been with for a while, so you no longer have to worry about how to find a boyfriend fast. You’ve gone from flirting to forever, and reviewing how things are you’d probably say that this guy is the one. So with every thing going well between you and your man, you may start asking yourself whether it’s time to take things to the next level. And by the next level, I mean starting up a family of your own, kids an all.
So how do you know when it is the right time for you to have kids? Well the thing is, often you’ll just know. If you get to the point of your life where kids are the only thing on your mind, then this is a obvious indication that you are ready.
But what happens when it doesn’t seem to be the right time due to other external factors? For example, you may feel you really want a child, but your career is just taking off exactly how you want it. A child at this point in your life could mean that it’ll take you a whole load more years to get to be in that position you want to be in, so is it worth it? Alternatively, you may feel you don’t have the money for a child at this moment.
What I’d say to these things, is there never seems to be a right time to have kids, some times you just have to do it. If money is an issue, then take up another job (Or he can). About work, once you climb up to the next level, there’s going to be too much for for you to do then to have a child as well, so you may as well have the baby then focus on your career for the rest of your life (Not neglecting the child of course).
People always make it through the struggles and hard times, so with a level head on your shoulder I’m sure you can do the same. Remember, the later you leave it to have a baby, the more complications that could potentially arise. I’m not saying you should settle to having a child in your teens or early twenties, but having one before the age of thirty is a good idea. Good luck in deciding when to have yours.
