While I totally agree with this advice it also mentions in a cited quote the correlation between age of first being married and planning number of kids. It says in general terms that for 1 kid plan marry between 28 and 34. For 2 kids marry between 28 and 32 and for 3 between 28 and 30. This is as high as it talks about mainly probably the book was written by a protestant but I'm curious to know what the oldest possible age is to marry at and have as many as 7 kids. I know that I don't have to worry as much since I'm only 23 and I'm a guy but I prefer that the age gap between my future wife and myself to be as little as possible. So I'm curious to see if anyone knows anything about this.
Most women are capbable of having children in their 40's and some can have children in their 50's. I think it is just many people being unwilling to have many kids is what makes there a stigma. We don't see too many people past a certain age these days with a lot of kids, so we think they can't have kids. Many can have kids, but they choose not to. The Duggards have 19 kids, and I am pretty sure she is not still in her 30's.
