I married a year ago to someone great. I already have 3 kids from my first relationship. My husband now has no kids of his own.Should we have a baby together? My youngest is 8 and oldest is 13. My husband knew before we married he may never have any kids but i feel guilty about that a lot. He says he does not care but i don't wont him to regret it later in life. 4 kids seems like a lot. What should i do?

  • If you feel you could handle and want another child, go for it. Talk to him, tell him you are open to the idea of a child together,if he really wants one. Don't do it just to please him though. Tell him what you just wrote above, be honest with each other, that's what relationships are about- honest communication

  • I agree with the first answer...talk to him...but make sure this is what you want to do and not just out of guilt!

  • I agree, talk it out! But, don't have another kid just because you feel guilty about it. Make sure it's what you want and that you could handle another kid. Also I think if you really want to do this, it would help to be financially prepared :)
