What older people seem to forget when at the age of 40+ they decide to have a child, never mind that the biological clock has long since stopped, is that by the time that child or children reach that universally difficult age of the Early Teens, when they are discovering their blossoming adulthood, that they are now in their late 50s or even in their 60s and, like it or not, we are starting to slow down. Also think back to your own childhood and your reaction when some child arrived with, to you, their "old" parent at school. People who deliberately and unnecessarily delay having children until they are, biologically, elderly (35-50) are being thoughtless and selfish. What is , as does happen, you and/or your partner drop dead at the age of 60? Your teenage son/daughter is left motherless, fatherless or even parentless.

The question is too old. So when you are emotionally and financially secure you are then too old?

Have children when you are young and grow with them

The results show a lack of understanding of human biology. Statistically after 35 your highly unlikely to fall pregnant. Child birth is a big physical effort best done when you are in you 20's

im not sure its a lack of understanding per se. most people know your chances of getting pregnant reduce after 35....but if you do fall pregnant, then why not? physically you are still fairly strong, lots more stable than in the 20s in many ways, so then it shouldn't be an age that's discounted as "too old", reduced chances of pregnancy or not.
