*light bulb*


The most compelling reason why people should not wait until they are in their 40s to start having children:

When you are in your 60s, hopefully with a fat pension or savings and ready to retire, your child is ready to go to college and your parents (if they're still alive) are old and needy. So then you're faced with a dilemma: do you keep your savings for your retirement, use them to send the kids to college, or use them to take care of your aging parents (whose retirement money may have run out)?

Yikes.
