Any younger couples just starting out on their own finding the idea of having children financially overwhelming or is it just me (and my FI).
FI and I have had many conversations about children after we are married. (Ideally, 2-3 years after. We are getting married this fall). However, I don't see this as being possible as we are both just starting out in our careers. I will need to go back to grad school (a 2-3 year deal, then however many years of debt after). And the way his job works, it could be years before he starts making a sufficient income. We can't even afford a pet currently on our salary.
By the time we both are settled in our careers, we could be well into our mid 30s-early 40s.
I don't want to parent at that age.
Anyone else share this struggle?
