There is absolutely nothing wrong with waiting for marriage and kids. Not one thing.
Why not use some objectivity and discuss the many, many benefits to waiting?

Waiting is the best thing many people can do. In addition, I think a lot of them should have no children at all.

We have the society we have sown ourselves, as a group. Many young people were raised with an "it's all about me" attitude. Prompt gratification of wants, no emphasis on sacrifice for future situations or for the best interests of society. Young people seem offended when they are told no one gets all that he/she wants. They follow current fads blindly - how's that tattoo/piercing working for you in the higher income job market? I agree with Hutterite, many should not think of multiplying until they grow up emotionally. Thirty years old and still playing computer games? Old enough to begin to think of how you will start tho assist your parents as they transition into retirement, and mom is still making you your breakfast, at home? "A fine kettle of fish this is."
