Women face a dilemma when it comes to kids that men just don't. Biologically speaking it's better for women to have their kids relatively young. Meanwhile if you wait around to finish college you're bumping up against the end of your peak, age wise. Women are taught they can have it all, do both, do everything. Truth is there are sacrifices and prices to be made no matter what you choose to do. I don't advocate women getting knocked up as teens but there is something to be said for being a relatively young mother and getting all that childbearing done when your body is in the best shape to do it. I couldn't imagine waiting till my 30's to start. Men sacrifice nothing by waiting that long. The same can not be said for women.
