Pretty much any major US city, especially the ones that don't offer great "family living" ex: New Orleans.

3. Live more of the bachelor and somewhat social lifestyle of the college years.

I live in the south right now and it seems like if you are not married after 25, you become a social outcast.
Portland, Seattle, Austin, Denver, and San Francisco.

I can totally relate. I live in the buckle of the Bible Belt and its the same way here. If you are older than 25 and not married, it can be tough to have an active social life. It can be done, it just takes some time and effort. I am also gay and that is very difficult where I currently live. I would love to live in Portland, Austin, or Denver if possible. Seattle and San Francisco are nice but a bit on the pricey side.

Places where people go to college and have professional careers. I can count on one hand, the number of college grads I know who got married and/or had a kid before 30. 20s are for single fun. Early 30s are for childless couple fun. Mid 30s is when people really start settling down.

Follow the gay men. We don't have the biological clock that woman do, only just won the right to marry and tend to settle down much later. It's pretty common for gay men (25-35) to go out in this city even on Thursday nights.

Portland, Austin, Denver and Seattle would be my top bets.

Not Nashville. San Fran would be my best guess or Portland/Seattle

Any densly populated area. You need room for a family.

It's better to be married and have children at an earlier age that way you grow up with your kids and have found someone to be with. Truth is marriage rates have fallen and age at marriage & family formation has risen nationally to late 20s recently. Will probably start to rise into 30s.

Its all a matter of personal wants but I say noway. Your 20's and 30's are your best years. Why would you want to be tied down with marriage and kids especially when the divorce rate is above 50%. Also, you can marry at 50 and still be with your partner for a goood 25+ years.

Really? The epidemic of grandparents caring for their allegedly-adult children's offspring--not occasionally by choice but by being dumped on--tells the story of breeding too young, before the parents are mature enough and financially able to do it on their own. Those couples may have "found someone to be with" but often split soon.

People of all ages can find someone "to be with." Only some of them can stick with being parents.

As to the second part of your post, you are equating making children with being married, a very flawed assumption.
