It has been a important question for many women that I know and have read about, and the question is when do you give up hope that you will have a family. The stats show that by the time most women reach 40 years of age they are past child bearing age. Also you will be 61 when you child reaches 21 and college age. Yes, you may be more financially secure to support a child at the age but the question is always are you going to be able to keep up with a child at the age you are and is your patience going to been too short to have someone asking you why the moon rises at night.
Hollywood makes a great case that you can still have it all but can you when you do not have millions and nanny’s and others to take the load of work, social and family off your hands. Who will cook in your house, who will clean your house, will you be able to afford for someone to come into your home to assist you? Are you going to have to do this on your own and hope that you can work from home? How will your mate deal with this new change in lifestyle? Will this strain the relationship?
So the question still remains at what age do you give up hope of ever reproducing your own offspring!?
