I just officially joined last week, shortly after my boyfriend and I discussed (mutually) marriage and kids, etc in the future. Now, it seems he has mentioned that to his father and after my bf thought about it, has realized he doesn’t want kids at all and thinks its much too soon in our relationship to discuss marriage but at some point it would be an option for us if we felt that way about each other. He didn’t want to tell me because he thought I would leave but at the same time feels he is holding me back and keeping me from having a child. He wants to be with me and can envision a future with me. He says I’m different than any girl he’s dated. So now I’m living with this man and I love him and it sounds like I will never have children, but at the same time, I cannot imagine my life without him. It has me questioning what I want…do I actually want kids or do I like the idea of having kids and saying I’m a mom, etc? I wonder. I haven’t been this happy in a long time and that is because of him I know it. So long story short, I’m waiting but it’s not coming anytime in the next year at least. It’s been a rough couple days around here. Anyone been in similar situations?
