What is the ideal age to start having children?

Only you can define your priorities, but let's do some math.  Assume you plan to have 3 kids spaced at ~2 year intervals.  Here are some plausible scenarios considering female fertility, etc. rendered in age of the female.

Start at 25:
Kids born at 27, 29, 32 years old.
Last child graduates college at 53.
First grand child at 54 (27+27)

Start at 30:
Kids born at 32, 34, 38 years old.
Last child graduates college at 59.
First grand child at 64 (32 + 32)

Start at 35:
Kids born at 37 years old.  (natural and IVF fail for more)
Last child graduates college at 58
First grand child at 74 (37 + 37)

So factors to consider include:
  • Stability and financial status of couple
  • Female fertility
  • Unpredictable natures of pregnancy, miscarriages, etc.
  • Pushing life events later into life - retirement savings, grandkids, etc.
