    I agree. Lots of mothers don't even have their first child until a lot older than that these days, though I wouldn't recommend it myself.

    There is no guarantee of course, but if siblings are close in age they are often really good company for each other whilst young. Then again, when there is a big gap between children the older ones are a great help with the little ones.

    I don't think there is any "right" or "wrong". Sometimes you even have to take what you are given.

    I would choose around 32 as well however money is probably one of the probles parents face so they wait longer before they have 2nd child.I would probably recommend two childs that has a age gap of say 2-3 years otherwise they just don't mix well..
