It wasn't too long ago that once you got out of high school, the expected, acceptable thing to do was get married and work on having kids out of diapers by your twenties!  It's safe to say times have changed...

Now the norm is to establish a career and financial stability before the whole "kids conversation" even comes up.  With my first child coming soon(Oct. 22nd due date!), I was even later than the "new average" of males, according to a new study(dailymail).  It states the average age for guys wanting to become dads is 29.  The REALLY shocking figure; that's 3 YEARS SOONER THAN WOMEN!

I just made the cusp of the "oldest age to have kids" at 35!  Women were cool with kids at an even later age; 41!  Dang, much older and your kids will be attending your funeral on their graduation day!
