    Default To parent, at what age did you have your first child?

    and your ideal age to start family with children?

    Let me tell you the younger the better!

    The younger you are the more energy you have to care of young kids, some more can retire earlier and your cash outlay will not be eroded by inflation.

    Hey.... This is a property forum leh!
    Since you asked, I would ask you to consider it from a financial point of view.
    Have 2 kids before your wife turn 30 and you will have some tax exemption.
    The more kids and the younger she is the larger the exempted amount.

    My ideal... marry by 28 because you need at least 2 years to start earning and saving to have enough for metrimonial home and wedding expenses. I'm not for the idea of borrowing/getting money from parents.

    Then enjoy 2 years of no kids. Once kids arrive, its a path of no return.

    Best have 2 or 3 kids. One child is very boring for that child.

    Btw, the ave age for guys getting married in Singapore is 30 (I think) and for ladies is 29 (I think).

    Oops..... Actually I realized that this is outdated. Things changed in 2005.
    Whatever it is, it is better for the woman to give birth when she is young and energetic.

    Having said all this, marrying late for any reasons is nothing to be upset about too. Spend some quality time looking for that someone you can spend the rest of your life with is extremely vital. My friend married his wife after only knowing for 3 months. Now he took to out to drink kopi and lamented his regrets.... I also know of people who are already pass 35 and still deliberating on her potential spouse. She just wants to be super careful.

    Doubtless to say, childbearing for a younger lady is definitely easier than for an older one but this should not be the sole reason for marrying early. With today's medical advancement, childbearing at 40 is still feasible, amid that bit more body aches.

    My only issue with late childbearing is when your kid takes you to his/her school for Parents meeting session, you are the only one with a walking stick...
