Having a family as an engineer

Hi there, I intend to study civil engineering next year. Being a girl, I would like to have a family sometime after uni, and I've heard from many forums that engineering has long work hours which can impede on one having a comfortable home life and starting a family, where looking after children after work can become a problem where you come home late. This is one of the biggest issues that really scares me from the civil engineering degree although I am interested in it. Thank you in advance :)
