It is a well-known fact that previous generations had children earlier than those born after 1985. In spite of this, they are constantly asking when to start a family.In the generation of our parents, grandparents, it was perfectly accepted that somebody in their early seventies would grow up, marry, and have at least one child between the ages of 24 and 25. From the Y generation, that is, from those born between 1985 and 1996, this may be extended, it is accepted that They did not start a family until the age of 28-30. In 1995, 70 per cent of marriages were under the age of 30, while in 2017 this was only true for 40% of couples. According to American survey data - in the US, similar trends as in ours - 29% of respondents cited financial reasons, 26% still did not find the right one, while 26% pushed their marriage to a young person because to be happy.Are we getting more and more kids?

You're not going to see your kids grow up! One year, life expectancy at birth increases worldwide, but more research has proven that having a younger child is related to longer life.3. Older mothers find it harder to have children! In fact, the exact opposite is true. British researchers have found that the older a child is, the more positively and willingly he or she is to parenting (this was true until the age of 40, but his or her older child also had a problem). Later childhood has a positive effect on the mother's brain, for example, women born after the age of 35 perform better on cognitive tests.4. It's too bad for a kid to have an older mother! Older mothers' children perform better in school tests and go to college more often.
