Ah, the E320... what an old donkey that was. Sorry, but you are going to have to try harder than that to impress us.

You make it sound as if i was being racist or demeaning..how dare you! The guys i was talking about were also all personal friends and so were thier wives and children..and yeah, they sent money home to buy land etc..good for them..each to thier own.

I came over there, worked, saved, spent..and came home to the UK to enjoy being with my two newborn grandaughters...Hmm.

22 & 23 is not that strange? Though the E320 is a pig of a car.

Yeah. A bit pretentious to be making comments. But where I'm from 45 is still classified as a young parent.

I'm 30 and just about to be married. Kids are a few years off still so when I'm 45 my oldest kids will probably only be 11-12.

I think you have made the right decision of having kids at young age; now you can have all your life to enjoy while you are still young. I keep telling young people who want to start a family the same advice, to have kids and get over with. Young men and women are more resilience and full of energy which is ideal for the job of parenthood

Yeah but you know nothing of life.

When your kids ask a question, will you say 'Dunno - ask your teacher'?

On the flip side , one can't enjoy their 20s being single or as a childless couple.
It's just different strokes for different folks. Some want to be parents at a young age and some don't. So some will enjoy the path you mention and some will enjoy the path I mention.
