Kids can be great and amazing buut it's no secret that everything becomes harder with them around. I like the idea of having kids and marrying a guy who's had a few scamps already (that don't live with us) would be nice (provided they're 9 or older) but going from being a single, childless, independant person to an accountable, informed, future co-parent overnight, is a *bit* of a shock. I think two parents dating each other are more mentally prepared but everything is *easier* without kids.

I think it would be easier for a parent and a non parent as there would be less schedule issues to worry about as well as one less set of kid (s) that you have to worry about introducing to a new adult. However a major benefit of two parents dating would be that each already understands difficulties and nuances of having the responsibility of another life.
The parent. They already have experience with kids and are more in tune with the responsibilities so they know what to expect.
