Ask Honey: Worried About Family's Reaction

Dear Honey, My husband and I have been together for six years (married for three). I am only 27 years old, but we both want to be young parents. We have been talking about starting a family for a while, but the response from family and friends has been very negative! I know I shouldn't care what other people think, but I want to share this news with our family and friends. How should I respond if they say something negative about our age?


Dear Concerned Wife, This should not be about age. This is about your maturity. Be mature and do what you and your husband want to do! One of my daughters was married at eighteen and my first grandchild was born one year later. She is the best mother. Forget your family and friends advice. Get pregnant!!!! And share the happy news with us at
