This is just silly, cant he just save up for this boat while TTC? Gosh is not liket a child stops your life forever.  My parents had 8 children and still did everything they wanted.  My sis in law has 4 and they do and live life as normal as possible.  Tell him enough is enough, life is too short anyway to be spent on material stuff.  GL hunny and best wishes:)

Wow, judging by his childish, manipulative behavior it seems you already have a child. Why can’t you do both? Life doesn’t end just because you have children. You juggle and make it work.

He’s probably thinking that a screaming infant is going to wreck the nice relaxing boat rides he’s dreaming of. Calm down! Let the man enjoy his life and do what he wants to do before he settles down and commits to a child. I think the “I’m not trying until I have a boat” is a bit childish but I can see his point of view. It’s not uncommon for men to want to “live their lives” before they enter fatherhood. Most women don’t see children as “the end of peoples lives” but it’s a huuuuuge change and it could backfire forcing him into having a child before he is ready and from what you’ve wrote, he doesn’t seem ready quite yet.

@Grego2011:  I could have written this post myself! My husband wanted to buy a boat and a car. I’m like, how does that even compare? After a lot of fighting, he came to terms with it and we decided to TTC instead (he wants a baby more than anything right now!). I’m not sure how I did it… It just didn’t make sense for us and he finally saw that too. I’m sooo thankful. It was def a rough patch.

If he wants kids as well, let him have his boat.
