Regarding the point about "start your family", we need to remember about Sarah, having Isaac at age 90. It's not wrong to wait to have a baby till you're ready, at least you feel confident about your parenting and finances. So to tell parents to start early is just not Biblically correct. People are having babies in their 50s today.

Harry:
Sarah was not the norm. She illustrated how God can still open a closed womb at any age. Abraham and Issac weren't intentionally waiting to have children late in life or until they had more confidence in their "parenting and finances." Yes, it's possible for people to have kids in their fifties, but that doesn't mean that it's best for couples to wait until then.

The Bible does tell us that sons born in one's youth are a reward and that we should number our days aright--which implies we should be good stewards of our fertility and energy.

Gina Dalfonzo

Not to mention that having babies in one's 50s is a difficult, expensive process that can take a serious toll on a woman's health. (Liza Mundy's book "Everything Conceivable" provides some helpful research on the subject.)
