Some are choosing to forego the dreaded walk down the aisle and live as lifelong partners. On the other hand, like Brangelina, some are putting off marriage far longer until they've established careers. The fact of the matter is, because many are waiting for satisfaction in their careers first, they then feel that having a baby is the next logical step as they may not accomplish their goals until after reaching their mid to late 30s and early 40s.
