Let me preface this by saying I know this is a complex subject that touches a nerve for many people. And I'm not coming from a judgey or assumey place, but as a concerned friend.
I have lots of friends (nearly all of my friends actually) who are in their early 30's, in stable relationships, established in good careers. They want kids 'one day' but don't really think of it as happening any time soon. Most say they will start trying in their mid 30's. I just think this is crazy, and they could potentially be setting themselves up for a lot of heartache, especially if they want more than one child, in which case they will potentially be going for round 2 in their late 30's early 40's. I really don't think many of them have thought about the possibility of it being difficult for them.
Would you say something to them? I don't want to be that smug, annoying 'everyone should have babies like me' friend, and I know that it's likely that for some it's a lot more complicated than all that, but I honestly want to shake them sometimes and shout 'what the hell are you waiting for??'
ETA (i said this in a later post but i think it may be getting missed by some) I would NEVER bring up the topic myself, I'm talking more about situations where friends have brought up 'putting off' having kids in conversations themselves- these are the times I wonder how much to say on the matter myself.
