Message from Jacob in Nice Respectable People Group #general
Once you have kids, it's hard imagining life without them
I've wanted a baby so bad for about two years. We waited because money, school, etc. Finally I started a daycare job in April working with 2-3 yr olds and I pretty much broke down on my birthday in May and begged to start trying. I got a baby for my birthday 😊
That's really awesome, tbh. I think our(my wife and I) experience was a little less planned
We had our first son about 2 years after we got married.
It will be 3 for us
We've been together 5 years. Got married after 2. Our 3rd anniversary was in November, and our little boy will be born in January-mayyyybe early Feb if he is stubborn
That's really great news. It's uncommon for young adults in this time to get married "early" and have kids
I met my husband at 18 and will be 23 when Henry gets here.
I'm glad we started early
That's about the same as me. Met my wife when I was 19 and she was 17.
I feel like we've completely dominated general lol
Oh lol. Well, I didn't see anyone else posting
But I lurk almost all the time. Never really post anything, so there's that.
Husband is about to leave in 30ish minutes so I will probably go back to sleep for a bit. No use in having a regular sleep schedule right now since I'm about to have a newborn lol
every time I lay down this boy starts rolling around like his imaginary pants are on fire
Because he knows that mom is trying to sleep. Duh.
The midwives said that I'm basically rocking him to sleep when I'm up and moving around, so they get more active when you lay down since the rocking motion goes away
That was my wife's experience since she works as a nurse and on her feet all day
@netgearblackhawk The Ukrainians I grew up up around all get married super early
18 is pretty normal
@Jacob It seems like the culture here is pushing people to be promiscuous for decades.
Delay marriage and family
Encourage instant gratification, etc.
At the same time, guys are getting into relationships too early
If you're ready for marriage it's fine, but there's no reason to spend 20 years of your life dating starting in middle school
Maybe there's some compelling reason for this that I'm missing, but it seems counterproductive to me
Biologically we weren’t made to start being with opposite sex until our late 30s either. There’s a reason our bodies change in early teens...
I mean, it’s science
Women are most fertile in early 20s for a reason

I personally think men should have their lives together before thinking about relationships instead of rushing into it
So, what ever age that happens at is the right age
They should, but...
God they’re still after that guy in Strasbourg?
“Lives together” is subjective. One man can do a whole lot with his bare hands, while another only sees money as the important thing
A lot of things are subjective
Doesn't mean we shouldn't use our best judgement
Oh, I thought you were broadly talking about all men when you said "men are getting into relationships too early." Didn't understand you meant only some men when they're ready 😃
Speaking of bad parenting:
