A married architect says that years of studies have made the prospect of children unrealistic.
Rachel Clements, 26, spent six years completing her degree in architecture, but still has a two-year registration process to go.
Architects must attend a minimum of seven years of training, meaning that many have reached their late 20s or early 30s by the time they are ready to go to work.

& # 39; It often comes down to the question: & # 39; Am I registered or starting a family? & # 39; ABC news.
& # 39; I burned out. I'm tired. And to think now that I have a registration process ahead of me that can take two years, and furthermore, whether my partner and I want to start a family, it certainly raises concerns about what the next 10 years will look like. & # 39;
Mrs. Clements said that it takes most people in her field about 10 years before they are qualified.
Because of the damage that a career gap can cause, the couple is now considering adoption or freezing her eggs.

& # 39; If you are going to take a year off, that inevitably puts something at stake and that is often career development. Especially if you've spent a lot of time and effort trying to get to the point where you are registered, & she said.
In the Australia Talks National Survey conducted by the ABC, 62 percent of 25-29 year olds said they had difficulty maintaining a healthy balance between work and private life.
Nearly 50 percent of the women in the survey reported problems with career opportunities compared to 40 percent of men.
According to the Gender Equity Insights 2019, one of the factors that contribute to the gender pay gap is the lack of promotions when they take time off to start a family.
