Was your father 45+ when you were born? Were your own children born later in your life?

Is it unfair to have a child whose father with be 70 when they graduate high school? 80ish...or 95 when they're considering having children of their own? Am I crazy to consider someone for a life partner who may be in his early 50s when we're ready to start a family? My thoughts on parenting are that a strong home, love, and support are what's essential, not sticking to a traditional family structure for its own sake. But is his age an issue to consider (for the sake of the children having a father present more than 30 years of their lives)?
