Me and my wife are 25 and 24 respectively: we've been married 2 years already and we really want to start a family. After mentioning the prospect of children to my parents, they told me that maybe we should wait a while and enjoy married life because you don't want to do everything too early. Have they got a point? We do want to have children and we're excited about the prospect of parenthood but my parents do have quite a valid point. What should i do? Is it too early to start thinking about having kids or should we go for it?

You and your Dearly Beloved have been 'Married 2 years already,' and with this, even Before when there was more in store with you Both having nursed and nurtured a Real Relationship, you feel it Might be time to Add to your love Line... About having kids. Children often have a way of Binding the bough and keeping it from Breaking.
It's always nice to talk to mom and dad of Important things that one sometimes deems Necessary in getting their own wise ol' owl Opinions, being they 'Have lived longer.' However, it doesn't Always mean they Know what is Best, especially for two birds of a feather who were Mature enough to tie the knot, keep the flames going and flowing in the Romance department and have made this Work with a lot Of.. Team work on both your ends.
It should Now be your So and your own decision and if you feel it is time to Bring more of a bond into your life with your wife, then do things in baby steps in Preparing for this Blessed event and in the end, when you tell mom and dad "We are pregnant," believe me, you will not hear any guff or stuff on their own end.
Good luck and bless you both.. You have my blessings to make this a baby bond. xx1

There are distinct advantages to waiting and distinct advantages to starting early. When older folks advise younger people to wait, the primary focus is making sure that you have a marriage which is going to survive and thrive and not end in divorce.
Of course, having children is an irreversible decision so it is one which should be given much thought beforehand. Make that decision through good communication and collaboration with your wife and you will be fine.3
