Carol and I were married very young and I’d be lying if I didn’t say times were tough, especially with having our family early. Treats for ourselves were very few and far between and I remember we had to be quite creative in ensuring our children had nice experiences. Looking back I sometimes think that not having a lot of money is what made us a close knit family.
If I had my time again would I do other things before starting a family like get a good education or a well paid job first? No. I’d do exactly the same.
