Parents forbid my husband and I from having kids?

So not sure why these kinds of weird things happen to me but here goes... My husband and I got married about 9 months ago. We are young, age 22 but have been together for 8 years, own a home and are financially stable. So now, we were possibly thinking about adding a little addition to our family.

My husband and I got married about 9 months ago. We are young, age 22 but have been together for 8 years, own a home and are financially stable.
So now, we were possibly thinking about adding a little addition to our family. We would like to have kids fairly young, that way we can do everything with them while we are young and will still be young for our grandkids someday.
Well, not that it’s totally their business, but while out to eat with both our parents, they slipped in a “We just hope you guys don’t plan to have kids for 8 years or so”
Well the looks on our faces must have given us away and they realized that we were planning to have a baby within a year. Next thing i know they start flipping out and yelling saying that we are not allowed or permitted to have a baby right now and yelling that we MUST wait to have a child. They couldn’t give us any other explanation other than
“because thats just how it should go!!!”
Both sets of parents love us as their own child and is so happy we are married so its not like they disapprove of the marriage. And they even admit how proud they are of our financial stability. So why am i being forbidden to have a child when me and my husband feel we are ready in every way? And yes I know how hard work and expensive babies are.
What should we do?? Theyre rly adamant about this and I’m not sure why. Should we just hold off another 8 years then? We’re lost Thanks!
