Many people currently decide not to have babies when they are young and wait until they get older instead. There are some reasons for this tendency, and it could have some impacts on family life as well as society.

To begin with, there are several reasons why a number of individuals want to have children later in their life. Firstly, this choice allows them to have more time to enjoy life when they are young. For instance, it is easier for a young couple to travel when they do not have a baby to nurture. Secondly, people who are at the early stage of their career usually have lower income compared to  when  they  are  older.  Therefore,  many  people  decide  to  start  raising  a  family  after  having accumulated enough money to ensure a better life for their children.

However, this tendency might bring about some negative effects on both family life and society. The  first  impact  is  that  having  children  later  will  cause  a  significant  age  gap  between  two generations. This makes it harder for parents to understand and communicate with their offspring. Additionally,  if  people  give  birth  when  they  are  too  old,  the  babies  being  born  might  be  less physically  healthy.  This might  adversely  affect the  quality  of the future workforce  if too many people decide to follow this trend.

In conclusion, there are some reasons why many people prefer to have children later in their life, and this tendency can result in some negative impacts on both family life and society.
