We emptied the nest at 44. It's the greatest thing ever. Having kids early is hard, but the payoff is worth it IMO



We became partial empty nesters last year in August year when out last started college and I just turned 49, we still have 2 in college which is why I said partial empty nesters as they still come home and we're still paying for their school and most expenses.

Your point still stands it's pretty great to know that before I'm 55 we'll be fully empty nesters . Sure it's still a little sad but we're adjusting and really starting to be able to enjoy the newly found freedom.

Not me brother! My wife and I had our first at 22. Second at 24.

While the rest of our college friends were partying it up and going on all these great trips, we were working our asses off trying to figure shite out. It was rough. My wife and I put a lot of effort into raising the kids and neglected other aspects of our lives. Career was one area that I neglected significantly. My dad traveled a lot when I was growing up. He never made my games, etc, etc, etc. I promised to never do that which limited my options career wise.

With the kids gone, I'm going back to get my MBA. I still have time to make a career with 20 years left. It's nice to be able to go on vacations whenever we want. It's nice to be able to go out to eat without worrying about babysitters or what the kids are eating. It'll be even more fun when our friends catch up with us.

I'm holding out til until 65.

Definitely having a few kids though but want to wait because they moms can't collect child support when you're dead.

re: How old were you when you had your last kid?
Got married at age 24, and didn't know at first if we were gonna have kids. Then about the time we decided we were ready, my wife was accepted into vet school, so we figured we'd wait until she got out and was established.

Ended up having kid #1 at 36 and #2 at 39. I distinctly remember when #2 was about 3 months old, and #1 was having a violent tantrum, and I was having to change #2's diaper for the third time in 30 minutes, looking over at my weary wife and saying "can you keep an eye on both of them for a little while? I promise I won't be long." She said, "where are you going?" "Down to the basement, I left the cordless drill on the charger and I'm going to use it to give myself a vasectomy."


Somehow, we survived, and so did our kids, now 23 and 20.

29 here. Not only will my late 40's and 50's be spent as an empty nester, but my 40's have been great because the kids are old enough to be left home alone and not be giant pains in the ass.

It's tougher these days to have kids in your 20's but I'm glad we did.
