But that doesn't mean it's always selfish.
A friend we grew up with just had his first child a few days ago. He's absolute ecstatic about it and he is turning 50 this year. He just got married last year, it took him a while to meet the right person. He had other long term girlfriends but this is his first marriage, because he finally found the right one. I think it's lovely that they're starting a family, because he'll be a terrific dad, and that child will be loved. Yes, he'll have less time with his parents, but it will be a joyful time. They are thrilled to be parents, finally.
