Hesitation is Death
One reason for the multiple hesitations in good people that pushes starting a family out to the 30s, 40s, or 50s is the cultivated feeling that they're not ready.
This belief is partly true. While people who have grown up on farm are well versed in nature, work, and other fundamentals of life, city folk never experience this and are instead miseducated with false narratives, taught to display obedience to ideology, and imprinted with a multitude of wrong-headed beliefs, leaving them unprepared for the basic facts of the adult world. When they are finally set free, they have no ability to understand the world, stay afloat in it, or create their own success. They hold fast to the instructions they were told are true and special, and find themselves only sinking faster, falling farther away from reality.
Secondarily, hesitation is created by media repetition suggesting that great and distant knowledge needs to be acquired through difficult means, usually just showing up to their paid lectures for certification of attendance, though every previous generation did fine without this complexity and idle teaching, as your parents and grandparents prove.
They urge you to be neurotic and afraid, because depressed and empty people buy more products and remain in need of their sage advice.
You do better to live as your grandparents did, keeping yourself simple and fixed upon the eternally tried and true.
