I can't really say anything to you, OP, that others haven't already - but I will add that my love of handbags coupled with my desire to start a family hasn't gone without outsiders' comments. More than one person has made it a point to say "Oh once you start having babies, you'll have to put the bags on hold" blah blah blah - IMO they have no idea about my financial standing, my husband's financial standing, etc. I always found it a little rude for someone to comment. Now that my husband and I are expecting baby #1, I can tell you that while I still can certainly AFFORD to buy luxurious handbags, my desire to do so has diminished some. You'll figure out your own path - and the most important thing to do is to keep open communication with your husband, who is your partner in life. Don't ever rush into having babies - it's not fair to the child.
