My Fiance and I decided that kids weren’t in our future. I actually have serious health issues that would make pregnancy very dangerous for me so we decided that we didn’t want kids in any way. No adoption, no in vitro, no nothing. Fiance actually never really wanted kids even before we started dating.
FI’s grandmother was absolutely appalled that we aren’t having kids. We just broke the news to his extended family that I can’t actually carry a baby to term safely and so we decided no kids. My family & extended family already knew as did his immediate family.
FI’s grandmother “When are you and my grandson going to make me a great grandmother?”
Me “Actually we’re not having kids.”
Her “But you have to. That’s a woman’s job.”
Fiance “Actually grandma, it would be very dangerous for TunaCat29 to get pregnant so we’ve decided no kids.”
Her “What does your mother say about that?”
Fiance “It’s our decision. Please respect that.”
I had never loved my Fiance more than when he defended our decision to his grandmother.
