My mother was 31 and my father 37. I was the last. Though there is nothing overly late about those ages, I always had the oldest parents of any of my peers. I don't think having them being experienced and a bit older helped much. It just contributed to them giving less of a ****.

It's funny, or rather, kind of sad, I was browsing around facebook the other day and I see my cousin, and I'm like, damn, didn't realize she was that old to have a five year old kid. Turned out she is 20.

Anyway, I can't pin my problems down to a late pregnancy, but I do think the smoking while knocked up didn't help. And I guess this all goes above and beyond the question.

Dad: late 30s. Mom: mid 30s.

The truth is strictly what the ones in power perceives it to be.

Enjoy any good things, even the little and menial ones, as you will never know what impending distresses could descend upon you in a moment.

They were both 27. My mum is a week older than my dad.

What's wrong with running away from reality if it sucks?

Edit: I'm upset that no one's parents have an age difference even close to mine... just another sign of how ****ed up my family is/was...

My mum was 31 and my dad was 36 when I was born.

Wilfred Mott: Oh, Doctor... what about you now? Who've you got? I mean... all those friends of yours...

The Doctor: They've all got someone else. Still, that's fine. I'm fine.

25 and 27 It was a stupid mistake they made which resulted in me suffering my whole life. But they weren't mentally healthy themselves to begin with. Just stupid idiots that decided to have a kid just ''because everyone should have/used to have them at that point of their life''. They also got married for the same reason and it was beyond awful. My dad started to be physically abusive and behaving like a jerk since my mother got pregnant.

Never have children unless you've read hundreds of psychology books and you're mentally healthy yourself so you can provide everything that is needed for a child.
