There's not one "correct" timeline for creating a family: Some of us do it the traditional way where we pop out 2.5 kids in our twenties, others do it before, and others do it way after. In the end, all that matters is that everyone involved is happy and healthy and excited to create a life together.

Whether they wanted to focus on building their careers, entered second marriages, decided to skip waiting for that perfect partner, or had trouble conceiving, everyone has their reasons for starting their family a little later. And each one of them have loved the experience and wouldn't change a thing.
