It is a general belief that a woman should get married early and settle down to a happy home so that she can take adequate care of her children.

ENCOMIUM Weekly sampled opinions of doctor, women on the ideal time to get married and the ideal number of children to have.

 

DR AYOOLA

What is the best age to get married for women?

The earlier the better, but she must be matured enough for child bearing. Adolescent marriage is not encouraged, the body is not fully matured then. It is also not good for it to be late that would increase the chances of birth defect. Between 28 and 29 years is okay.

What is the ideal number of children a woman should have?

There is no ideal number of children, it depends on the age she starts giving birth. A woman can have five children, it all depends. What is ideal is the proper child spacing. There are some women we advice not to give birth but to use a surrogate mother because of the danger that lies in it for them.

 

ESTHER OLUWAFEMI

What is the best age to get married for women?

It all depends. Medically, it is good to get married early. From mid 20s to late 20s but some are unfortunate to marry late 30s, 40s and they still have children. Some even have children without complications, it all depends on how providence smiles on the person.

What is the ideal number of children a woman should have?

I don’t think we should put a number to it. Some people have four, five, three and even one. I know of someone who has a child and she keeps embarrassing a friend anytime she is pregnant. The fact that you have a child does not make those with four worse off.

They might even take care of those four better than the one you have. Just ensure you cater for the ones God gives you and don’t go beyond your capacity.

 

BIMBO JOHN

What is the best age to get married for women?

The earlier the better, at most early 30s except situation is beyond her control. It is good to marry early and have your children early.

What is the ideal number of children a woman should have?

It depends on what she and her husband wants. I have a friend who wants one more child but she is considering the economy, she wants to wait, while another just had twins. It all depends on their financial capacity.

 

FUNKE SOLOMON

What is the best age to get married for women?

It is good to marry early. Twenty five years is okay. She can have her children before thirty-five. Medically, it is better so that her body can be strong enough to go through the stress of child birth.

What is the ideal number of children a woman should have?

Three is ideal for me. The couple would be able to take adequate care of the children, provide all they need and give them the best education.

 

MARY PHILIP

What is the best age to get married for women?

Before she is 30. She can quickly have her children and they would grow old together. I know of a woman that married at 24 years, had her first baby at 25. She is fifty now and her daughter is already married, she would be a grandmother by 51 years. That is quite impressive.

What is the ideal number of children a woman should have?

At least, four. It should not be more than that. Even if the woman does not have both sexes, she should stop having children. What a girl can do, a boy can do too, vise visa.

 

KEMI ADEOYE

What is the best age to get married for women?

It is good to get married early. To me, 26 years is the ideal age for a lady to get married. But some people stil marry in their 30s.

What is the ideal number of children a woman should have?

As many as they can cater for. They should just not to beyond their capacity.
