    Man, I\'m getting left behind

    Seems like everyone I know is or has recently:

    1. Gotten Engaged
    2. Gotten Married
    3. Having Children
    4. Having more children
    5. Or option 5, joined the military

    I feel like by the time I find a woman and get married, my children won't even get to play with all my friend's kids cause they'll already be grown and gone. I need to get moving.

    I figure I'm still ok being 22 and having none of the above, but at the rate I'm going... I won't get married til I'm about 80. For those of you that are married or have kids, what age did either of those occur?

    Re: Man, I\'m getting left behind

    Option 5 is your best bet.

    1 sucks cause you're whupped.

    2 sucks even more cause you're whupped even more.

    3 sucks cause not only because you're even more whupped, but the kids can't do chores around the house for a few years and you're stuck picking up after them

    4 sucks even worse than 3 for even more of the same reasons.

    So in recap, 5 is the best option cause not only do you get paid to shoot guns and blow crap up and travel to far off exotic lands, but you can get free condoms from the medics so you don't have to worry about the first four /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Hmm, tough choices! Got married at 21, divorced at 23, no kids with that wife. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Got married again at 28, had lots of fun with the wife for 10 years, saved money, bought a house, vehicles, furniture, etc. Had the first kid when I was 38 /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif and the 2nd when I was 41. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif Having our financial life in order before kids certainly made things easier for us, but it's a damn sight harder to keep up with small children when you're this old! /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

    Re: Man, I\'m getting left behind

    At 20, I have no intentions of being married, or having kids in the next 6-8 years.

    I chose option #5. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Re: Man, I\'m getting left behind

    Joined military at 18
    Got married at 20 with a stepson.
    Our second kid at 21
    Our third at 26
    Miscarrige at 27
    Our fourth at 28 (well he's actually due in a few weeks)

    It hasn't been easy by any stretch but I wouldn't change a thing. I love my kids and I love my wife, but I hate my cat (stupid cat)
    You just gotta take it one day ata time and don't expect it to be like TV or the movies, everybody fights and it sucks but making up kicks butt. And the kids are the best thing to happen to me, gives me something to grow up for and to look forward to when I wake up each morning.

    I'm going on number 4. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I started out as one of those guys screwing as many girls as he could until he got married at 25.

    Had our first kid at 30 and now going on with our second child to be here Dec. 2nd (this coming Tues.) and am 33 years old. To top that off, the wifey wants one more kid before calling it quits. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    My life has been much more fulfilling since I got married. I couldn't imagine how boring life would be without my wife and daughters. Unless of course you enjoy the same thing every weekend- going out with your buddies and trying to pick up girls. That routine really gets old after a couple of years........

    dont worry about what other people are doin. I was 26 before I even had a really serious (ie marriage is on the way) relationship. some peeps just arent ready at 18, 19, 20 etc.

    I was married at 21 to my HS sweetheart, 2 kids at 26 (twins) /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif, and now I am approching 30.

    Don't get too worked up about where you think you should be in life, you're only 22. Now if you were 42, maybe I would be concerned. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    I know how ya feel. I'm 25 and all my friends from HS and College are alot futher along 'in their lives' than I am mine. Most all of the college friends have jobs in there majors though... I'm trying to get far away from mine /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    No serious girlfriends, no serious job offers on the table and all my buddies I used to run around with are gone or have wives/kids that take up all their time.
    So I feel like the third wheel on a motorcycle /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    (and those saying... ' Hey theres no thrid wheel on a motorcycle! ' Thats the point... feel kind of left out /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif)

    But then again, my mom's dad got married at 27 and my my uncle got married at 26 (after a short couple months dating - see #3). And things worked out for them in the long run... /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
