Time is not ticking away anymore

"When are you going to have children? Don't leave it too long – time is ticking away, " - by 2050, this phrase will be laughable. According to American reproduction experts, modern technology will enable men and women of childbearing age to freeze their ova and sperm and then undergo a sterilisation procedure. Now you can easily build a career, improve your lifestyle, seek out your partner and have children when both of you are ready for this.

This begs the question: what will it be like to have a society where 45-50 –year-old "young parents" are bringing up young children? Maybe over the course of time we will get used to it and consider it normal. After all, 100 years ago, women aged 17-18 and sometimes younger were commonly having babies. The age of 35 was not considered to be ‘youth’.
