  • If he doesn't want another child you should respect him.

  • marriage is about compromise. i only wanted one, hubbs wanted 3, we have 2. i really didn't want more than one. life isn't fair, remember that.

  • Maybe you should just do in-home day care, or become a nanny. Then you'd have the joy of children, and he wouldn't have the responsibility that he's not willing to have.

  • I think you really should talk to your husband about how serious you are about this... I know sometimes I want to have another baby , but I know that long term financially we can't and also that if I want to provide schooling to them I need to wait... some times we women get that i wanna baby and I wan tone now... but it goes away in time
