Would you get married and have kids in your 40's? Page 2 of 6    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6)
JoseMadre....sorry, that was extreme sarcasm. I have my retirement nest egg and my son's undergrad years covered now. With 4 years left to work, I am saving for gravy. Absolutely it can be done, is and has been, by many. frogy is young, half my age. He can't imagine himself doing it, nor could I at his age.

oh really, frogy?

I am sorry but I disagree. My parents couldn't give me any money for school; I had to work for it. That does not mean I shouldn't give my son a good start. The money I invested for his school is a RESF and must be used for university. If not, it returns to me. I feel my son's 'problems' are also mine. Just because he turns 18 he won't stop being my son.

And you will not be in your old age at 45, nor even 55. Your daughter may even enhance your old age, given a chance.

you are too funny and so right!


frogy...do you seriously think you stop being a Dad just because the kids turn 18? Your rigid thinking may impede your job hunt as well as your relationship with your kids.

@ happy, I am glad that not all women feel their career is their family. Makes for a better balance in the workplace. It was sooo lonely before emancipation, lol.

Unless one of the very lovely ladies from the Fifth Dimension someday falls in love with you.
Then it might become a delicate negotiation if she magically wants little cooldogs running around.

I had to reread that Eric. I thought you said, "corndogs". lol

Aw, Nooooooo. I wouldn't get married and have any more children. We'll just leave that to the younger generation, I like to hand them off now for diaper changes. "Here ya go."

spokanemike76 :
I am 36 and I want to get married and have kids with someone great. The older I get the more I think about suragacy or other alternative methods of being a parent. At 36 I seem to old for the 20 somethings that are interested in a family and the 30 somethings with no kids or that have kids do not want any/more kids. I do not want to rush in and just have kids with the first girl I meet but how many women are going to want to have kids in their 40's?
I know what I want, just no clue where to get it. Not to mention should I be chasing around the 20 somethigns the 30 somethings or the 40 somethings??


I've been married twice, at my age I don't think I'll ever get married again or even think about having children. Even though Tony Randall married at age 75 with a 25 year old young woman and had two children.

I don't have children, but every time I felt nostalgic about not having my own kids, I volunteered for a week-long summer HIV/AIDS children's camp. Volunteered for about 14 years. Getting to bond with the children was very rewarding. It has been a fantastic experience, something that has changed me forever.

Before having children, I always encourage people to volunteer working with kids. It is an amazing eye opening experience.

Even at my age, if I were to meet someone that had teens and felt like she was the one, I would'nt hesitate.
I've been involved in raising seven girls and I'm still clueless though. :/

l could not be talked into having a child together though. Nope....nope...nada.

Too late to have kids for me.
I have been to the vet and had the ladies operation.

Am not interested in raising someone else's kids either.
Wicked Step Mother is not a favoured role.

Now being a mad Auntie Mame character.... ABSO - BLOODY - LUTELY.

That's what happens when you try to take children out to Great Adventures, when they are Coney Island quality.


Hey, I could take offense to that...at least we have Nathan originals! Great Adventure seemed to be attracting ghetto like white on rice last time I was there.



I spent at least $250 on food, drinks, snacks alone, and I didn't have fun.


That is what happens when you pay for guys, eh?

Next time make them pay, you gotta train them early! ;)

I visited Coney Island with my friend about a month ago, and I had forgotten how much fun and affordable the place is.

White Castle


Murder Burgers! -muhahaha


Every place has it's specialty. I'll go to Great Adventures for the rides and Coney Island for everything else (boardwalk, food, Aquarium, view, arcade games, etc). Coney Island was the place to be about 20+ years ago, it had it all, the beach was cleaner, the sand was good quality, the games had real quarters (now everything is tickets for redemption), and the prizes were cooler.


LOL--when you were 10 yrs old Coney Island was the place to be to get shot. It was cleaned up a lot in the last decade. The minor league stadium was the start of that.

As for Aquarium, they are going though extensive repairs, and last year and this year are inadequate. Hopefully next yr their new wings will open !
