Hi! I'm almost thirty and I've been married to my husband for almost three years now. Even though my husband already has children with his previous wife, his folks are constantly on me about having a baby. Personally I think it's because he only has two girls and they're fishing for him to have a boy and perhaps I'm their last hope. I told my husband from the beginning when we started dating that I wasn't interested in having children. I just don't have the patience for them and I honestly don't think I would make a good mother. I'm not very maternal when it comes to his kids and I don't have that much experience with kids in general. Everytime I tell my friends this they keep telling me that I will change my mind, I will want one of my own eventually. I've felt this way ever since high school...listening my classmates who got knocked up talk about how stressful it is. I've made up my mind. Does it make me less of a woman because I don't want kids? Why is that a requirement of a woman? What fulfillment do you, mothers, get by having children?Answer Question
