Why worry? Its common for folks of that age to have trouble sleeping. When their infant starts crying in the middle of the night they'll already be awake.

Their life, their decision. I happen to think its sad to cave in to the pressure to reproduce yourself.

In another recent thread now closed in another City Data forum, the discussion was on frequency of sex among singles and with whom on a casual basis, and an almost 67 year old women said "been there done that (in much younger years) - I'll wait for something better" as if casual sexual encounters for single unattached women of age 67 thru 72+ (or whatever) have men lined up wanting and desiring sex with a woman of that age and that sex at that age for women in the singles world is easy to come by - and as if casual sex were easily an option for her at age almost 67, as if there are tons of men seeking sex with women in that age group in the singles world!

(and as if these usually non-existent tons (or even a few) of men meet one's individual standards of possibilities)

(of course, there are exceptions)

(none of this applies to married women or partnered women)

Although it was our choice to have children between the ages of 25 and 30 let alone at 73, I wouldn’t take away other people's choice to. As long as someone is willing to pay to have IVF, then their doctor is going to allow it.

I would if I were king. For a country with1 billion people or more it doesn’t make sense. Just lock up the doctors.

I guess being left without a mother at an early age, on purpose, is acceptable these days. What about the children? So selfish. Losing a parent, as a child, leaves a lasting impression.

Hmmm. My son was born when I was 37. That definitely had no impact on my retirement planning. I am retiring in 2.5 years. Exactly when I had planned to.

She used a donor egg.

I read the article. In that culture a woman is considered a complete and utter failure if she doesn't have children and is openly bullied for it. It's horrible on so many levels.

Infertility, not waiting.

Big difference.

My brother had his last kid a age 47, but his wife was much younger, maybe 39, all natural. It has. It affected his retirement, not for this couple, they are in top 1% wealth wise.
