I'm just curious. I'm planning on getting married in my early thirties and started having children with my beloved somewhere around there, but I was really curious what you guys think. It seems like people are waiting to have children at a much older age than they used to and in some ways I think it's good because you will be more experienced, but I think that it's bad in other ways if you won't be around to see your child graduate from high school. So yeah, what age do you think is considered normal for settling down and starting a family?

It's cultural. It depends on what country you live in and what the cultural norms are.
Some cultures expect girls to be married and bearing children by 14 of 15 years of age.
Out troops in Afghanistan have found that girls are regularly married by age 8 to 10. (Though not child bearing yet)
Among upper-middle class people of northern European descent, child bearing is often put off until the mid twenties and even into the thirties.
So, it depends on the culture. :shrug

In the United States the trend has been toward early thirties. See here for one site that I found.

Generally it seems that kids either turn up in your early thirties or when you're a teenager. I'd say the best time is early twenties, but that didn't happen for me(us)!
