The results of a new Gallup poll may surprise you. It found that the majority of Americans- 58%- think the ideal age for women to start having children is 25! On the other hand, most Americans think men shouldn’t start having kids until they’re 26 or older. The survey of more than 5,000 people revealed attitudes about ideal age for having children vary based on factors like education, sex and racial background. For instance, college-educated people are more likely to think women should wait until they’re 26 or older to become moms. Women are more likely than men to consider age 30 and older ideal for motherhood. And Hispanics and African-Americans are more likely than White Americans to believe women should start their families at a younger age.
