Why parents say you have to marry and have children until age 30?

I learned now as an adult it’s not true, I feel stettled down now at age 24, and By end this year 25 I hope to be financially stable. I would like start my family early at age 25/26. My parents believe you need date guy 10 years and never have sex until age 30 & marry. Even tho my older brother is married and 34 , my parents get upset when they announce they are having a baby. Like they are stupid and think couples don’t have sex once you marry and they are inocent. That’s what marriage is for to just have sex only and have babies.

  • Your parents are weird. You should get married before you get to 30. You shouldn't be actively trying to get pregnant in the first year of marriage; but you should be having enough sex that it isn't surprising if you do get pregnant.

    • My parents are controlling and they act like this 😥

    • They are not proud I’m 25 live alone, they want me not be independent & live with mom forever like a baby

  • I think the earliest any woman should have kids is maybe 21 or 22. But I think most women should wait until about 25 or 26. If a woman starts having kids at 30 that's great, but I don't think she needs to wait until then.

    • In 25 end of this year and want have kids. Not now but next year at 25 or at age 26.

    • But I’m not married.

    • My siblings all got lucky and married at 22,25, and me god he don’t want me marry yet. Maybe til I’m in my 30s I’ll be proposed to I have no idea. But parents r ignorant & compare me to them, like we can’t control life, god made my siblings marry fast except for me he has other plans , wants me marry late , but I won’t start my life til my 30s I’m ready settle now

  • Mine didn’t. They had my sister and I in their mid forties.

    • I see many women age 22-25 start having babies and now I understand why. I want have my first child next year age 25/26 . Because I feel settled down now in life and want start family

    • That is the perfect time to start. When you are ready.

    • My mom says it has to be at age 30 and when you marry. She is innocent and doesn’t know most girls my age 22-25 already have kids.

  • There is no age for it (in adulthood), like there is no age for divorce or been broke.

  • Maybe yours do but that isn't all parents. It's out of ignorance

    • My parents would kill me if I had a kid at age 26 next year without marriage. They acting like I’m 15 and pregnant lol

    • They are ignorant. They think all girls don’t have Baby at all and not have sex. My brother dated girlfriend 10 years no sex and then married. But my brother is a goodie goodie guy. I doubt girls wait 10 years to marry at 30 and have sex. They try manipulate me force me saying u marry at 30 have kids until 30 only

  • If you want to have kids that is

  • because they just make sex a boring biology!
