1. Take note of your personal success journey.

Before you think of starting a family, you must take a look at your personal journey. You need to take note of how far you have gone in life. This is actually the beginning of your readiness if it is to be analysed.

If you are not comfortable with the success of your personal journey so far, don't start a family yet. Build your personal journey until you are satisfied. It is the satisfaction gotten from your personal journey that will give you the conviction that you are ready to start a family.

On the other hand, if you are comfortable with your personal journey so far, then take note of the below important consideration before going forward.

2. Take note of your relationship with your partner.

Getting married is different from starting a family. Although, it is actually a prerequisite to starting a family. That is to say that it is not compulsory to start a family immediately after getting married. You can wait for sometimes before starting a family. That is why it is not always good to marry late. This is because, when you marry early, you will have the opportunity to put things together before starting a family.

It is important to consider your relationship with your partner first before considering to raise a family. Don't take laws into your hands without consulting your partner, or even seeking for his or her opinion.

This should come after having a satisfactory personal journey. When you are satisfied with your personal journey so far, you can then turn to your partner to know how ready he or she is. That is why I said you should not take laws into your hands.

If your partner is comfortable with his or her own personal journey, then look at your relationship. How far have you gone? Have the two of you achieved what you want to achieve. If the answer is no, please don't start a family yet. You still have a better opportunity to achieve those dreams or careers as partners, or husband and wife without children, than when you start raising your children.

Once you start having children, your work loads will multiply. You will have less time or opportunity to achieve those dreams. Take this consideration very important.

3. Take note of your financial situation.

You need to take note of your financial situation before starting a family. Do not bring any child into the world if you are not financially ready to take care of it. You and your partner should put heads together to see if you can comfortably bring in a particular number of children considering your financial situation. If the results of your investigation regarding this is satisfactory, then you can proceed to have a family, but if it is not satisfactory, please do not start a family yet.

4. Take note of your responsibilities.

There are many responsibilities that come when you begin to raise children. In fact, there are things you need to put in place before having a family. Such things include, a safe environment, basic needs, a set of morals and values, a set of conducts and respect, emotional maturity and perseverance.

A take home for you from this piece should be that you should not rush to start a family, even if you are married, unless the above requirements are met.
