I think what is more important than an exact age is being emotionally and financially ready and having established a good solid relationship with your partner.Raising children is fun and rewarding but can also be challenging and expensive and takes time and adds a lot of restrictions on what you can do if you are a responsible parent.I think you need to be past the stage where you are wanting to go out partying frequently and need to be willing to give up some of your free time to care for the child.I think you need to have a steady income that's high enough to support you and your partner and pay for diapers and food and clothes and medical care for the child.A well-established and strong relationship with your partner is very helpful also because it is a lot easier to raise a child if the two of you share the responsibilities and work well together.Once you have those things, that is probably a good time whether that is at 23 or 28 or 33 or maybe even 38.One advantage to having children younger is that your energy level will be higher for keeping up with all the things you need to do with them. If you wait until your late 30s or 40s, then you will be in your 50s or even approaching 60 by the time the child is 18 and you might not have the energy that you need to keep up with them.I think it is important not to start too early though before you have all the things I mentioned before. I think it is better to wait for the right maturity level even if you lose a little in energy.Considering all that, I think probably the ideal range for most people to have children is 25 to 35, but some could be ready sooner and others could be able to handle it a little later.
You don't need a good age to become a father (though you must be the age of legally doing that). You need the sense of responsibility, care, love and affection for the child and the mother of the child. When you are of legal age, and think that you are ready enough to be a father and to fulfill the responsibility - go for it (with your partner's consent obviously). But if you are not responsible even 40 is not a good age to become a father.
When you are mentally/emotionally ready and want to put in the effort to raise a human. If you have other desires like career/travels etc, don't have them until you have tasted it a bit so you don't regret having a child and resent it for not letting you live the life that you want. It usually takes men longer to be okay with marriage and having a child is 10x harder than marriage and bring committed to one person who is (hopefully) on the same page as you mentally. Imagine with a kicking and screaming child who you have to help regulate their emotions and teach them about anything and everything. It's a extremely strenuous.
Thanks for MHO ☺️
I don't think there is a set age.I have known guys at 40 plus years old but have the mentality of a 14 year old. Abuses wife; terrible father; jobless.I've also know guys at early 20s who are extremely matured, good job, treats girlfriend well.It depends on the guy.
This myTake talks about when should you get married but part of that decision, and the discussion in the myTake, is about when should you have children.When Should You Get Married? ↗
@MysteryGirl19 I'll be applying for residency next year. No babies yet. If you decide to continue on to med school, It's an emotional decision to make. If you have a long term partner in a different field and who is able to provide financial support while you study it could work. Supportive in laws and parents matter a LOT. I've seen it personally with girl in my class.
Depends on your income sad to say, but providing basic necessities to ensure a healthy child's upbringing requires yourself to have a healthy routine both emotionally and financially. So until that happens it's best to not think about a family yet, personally I would feel most comfortable between the ages of 30 - 35 which in most people's opinion is cutting it close to the menopausal age if assuming your partner is the same age also, but your chances of reliability and maturity toward having a family would be a lot higher in my opinion also
The age where you really know yourself and your partner and you have been married long enough to have had quality time IN MARRIAGE to have established life with your wife and built a foundation with each other. When all of that has been accomplished then you may be ready to be a father.
Whenever you're ready. Most people are like grown up children today, that's why they need to wait until their 30s. Really though if you're not a complete idiot and you want it you can make it work in your early 20s, just as our ancestors always did.
I don't think there's a right age necessarily, I have thought about it quite a bit though, I don't want to wait too long because I don't want to be a geezer by the time my future kids graduate high school.
There is no such thing as a good age to become a father ! Thanks
It's not about the age of the parents but their financial stability and if they are emotionally ready for the commitment of kids a. k. a. little fuckers
After the age of 35 when a man has more responsibilities that he can handle and that is more mature and has a better job
Whenever you are ready. Some are 21 when that happens, some are 25, etc.
When you’re mentally prepared to take care of a women and her kids. And financial stability is important.
When you're able to provide, protect, and lead your family
I would say in your 30s cause that way your mature grounded and settled down
My mom was 21 and my dad was 23 when they had me. I think that age is a good age.
The age in which they have financial stability and are mentally ready.
My mum was 26 and my dad was 24 when they had me. I dont have any kids. But I dont want to be too old
I am a women and I dont want to have kids until im in my late 20 to early 30 but that maybe because I'm going to be a pre med student soon. It depends on yourself personally but I think about 24-27 would be a good age to do it.
Married at 26, father by 27 and separated by 36.That's how I did it.
No set age. My friends became fathers at 21.
When you can a afford, anything else is child abuse
Any age as long as you have the maturity and mindfulness skills.
I will probably be a father at 30.
35-38 for the first one.
Ask for his mental age
When your girlfriend gets pregnant. 23 probably.
I'd say around late 20s
Im 22 and nowhere near ready lol
starts from thirty...
between 28 and 35
30s to mid 30s
for a guy i think 27
18 y. o@Iron_Man
Probably after the age of 35 when a man grows up and becomes more mature and takes on a good supporting job
Less than 30... people will still be immature and lack experiences to teach their kids values and lessons. Both men and women. Plus, one should enjoy life and party and travel and study before 30 then enter parenthood for the rest of their lives.
