Still a very young age to me.
It is not horrible, better for you to have your life together and decide on your own time, when you want to marry or have children.
I say you are a very smart person.

No. Only you can put that stigma on yourself.

well...if you want to have your own kids you do need to get started working on that. Otherwise- who cares about all the rest unless you are wanting to get married....

horrible or perfect? I did a lot of living before my first was born and got married at 32. Never stressed about it either, I knew it would come to pass.

Hope for the husband. Not so much for the kids.

As my Mom told me when I was only twelve years old: Kids are a double edge sword. They love you like crazy until they turn eighteen and then they thumb their noses at you.

People think that raising the kid is the trial. Not so. After the kid leaves home is when the really serious stuff starts to happen. And, it never, ever ends.

I am 16 years and counting past your age and unless it is a miracle birth kids won't happen, but someday I might feel like getting married. My horrorscope said I would meet my soul mate on the 19th.....

Not particularly. I got married very young and didn't get married again until I was 43. I never had kids and never wanted any. Being married and having kids isn't the be all to end all unless that's what you're looking for, but don't just do it because it's expected of you or you think you should.

Wouldn't be surprised if that's me in 6 years' time. The thought doesn't worry me unduly: I don't want kids and wanting to get married when you don't have someone realistic in mind you want to marry is putting the cart before the horse. Some friends of mine are in their early 40s and haven't married or had kids either. They have more interesting lives than most of the others the same age or younger who've settled down, so it's nothing to fear.

Yes, there is still hope for you as long as you're drawing breath on earth. What do you believe is your reason for why you haven't married of had kids? If that's something you've wanted, what are you doing to meet that guy? What are your standards? You are getting up there in age. But, there are women and men in their 40's and up finding love. And, there are women having children in their 40's.

It's considered a higher risk. But, it's not necessarily true that you'll have a baby with birth defects or Down's just because you're older. And, I don't recommend letting fear make you settle or have kids because of a timetable society sets forth. When you meet the right guy you'll marry.

And, whether you'll have children of your own, adopt, or use a surrogate is up to you and your husband. But, don't give up and just settle for anything. You might find it wasn't worth it and worse than being single with no children in the end.

Would you think it's horrible that a 30 year old man still lives at home, with no kids?
