§ How long should you be married before having kids? Relationships experts say there is a general guideline that people should follow.
§ They say the younger you are, the longer you should wait.
§ If a couple is 18-21 years old, waiting 4-6 years gives you enough time to get to know each other and create some financial and relational stability.
§ If you’re between 22-27, 2-3 years is good to create the safety, security and stability that is required to raise healthy children.
§ After 30, men and women may begin running into age-related fertility issues, and in that case, couples may want to start trying to get pregnant earlier than later.
§ They say regardless of age, your relationship should be at a good place before you have kids.
§ We’ve all been there…someone wants your number and won’t leave you alone until they get it.

§ A driverless shuttle that was being showcased yesterday crashed on its first day of work.
§ The shuttle is part of a joint project of insurance giant AAA, transportation company Kelois and French tech firm Nayva.
§ It had just begun setting off on half-mile loops around downtown when a delivery truck emerged from an alley and clipped its front bumper.
§ No one was injured and the truck driver was cited.
§ A city spokesman says the shuttle did its job in that the sensors hit on the truck, knew the truck was coming and stopped as it was supposed to do. The problem was the truck didn’t stop.
§ People were on the bus when it happened…no injuries were reported.
