If I was ready to have kids no woman will stop me from that Its not right
Most Helpful Girl
I am very curious about what other guys say on here. I do not want kids, but my boyfriend has told me he wants one. I've told him that we both need to be on the same page before I'd marry him. So it's something that does eat away at my mind. We've been together for over a year now, relatively minor issues here and there, but the kid issue could be a deal breaker down the road and it's something that worries me. He said he would stay with me anyway even if I don't decide I want a kid, but I don't know if he's really thought it through that much.
I've been asked this offline, and i said i wasn't sure. it's such a hard decision because i badly want kids. like baldly. if he doesn't id be super disappointed.
let me put it this way. id have to love him more than everyything I've ever dreamt for since i was a kid to give up biological motherhood. we could adopt. . . but if he won't accept that either then no, the relationship goes no further.
If he couldn't physically have kids, that'd be fine, I'd be very happy to adopt. However if he simply didn't want them, ever, and wasn't open to the idea at all, then I'd probably leave him eventually. It depends on his reasons, and on how compatible we were in other aspects of our relationship.
Absolutely! It's an important life goal for me and is important to my happiness. I want to be able to love and raise children, to watch them grow and become adults. If he doesn't want the same things; we aren't compatible.
I've been dumped at least partially for this reason. Not because I didn't want them, but because it wasn't looking like I could have them. It's a big deal - you're better off being on the same page on that one.
