What does one study reveal about the 'ideal age' for parenthood?
Ah, America. The land of the free, the home of the brave — and the country where women are supposed to start popping out babies before the age of 25, apparently. According to a just-released Gallup poll, most Americans — to the tune of 58 percent — think the "ideal age" for women to begin having children is "25 or younger." Scarily, there is no bottom cap for that range, which in theory means 58 percent of our great country may or may not support teen pregnancy.
Of course, those same expectations don't apply to men. Only 42 percent of Americans responded that they believe the ideal age for males to start procreating is 25 or younger. Most people, 52 percent in fact, think the ideal age for men to start having babies is 26 or older.
