  • If you aren't ready for another, he needs to understand that and be patient. Men, even when the want the child, aren't the primary caregivers. Not to mention the fact that HE DOESN'T HAVE TO CARRY THE BABY OR GIVE BIRTH!!!!! If you were the one who wanted to conceive and he didn't, it wouldn't happen. When you're ready, then it will be time...ask him to be patient...

  • SOunds to me like you already know the answer. First of all, YOU said your not ready for another. Secondly, he is your BF.... shouldn't marriage generally be the first Plan? I only say this since I am in a similar situation. I have a dd and SO and I want one of our own, but: 1) Insurance situation is not right as of yet and 2) I kinda wanna get married before I have another child. Why put myself in the same situation as last time, except this time I have 2 kids and am single??

  • Marriage first? NAH!!!! I have reasons for not wanting to be married EVER. He is 6yrs older than I am so the longer we wait the older he feels he's getting but i Just cant put myself thru that right now.

  • If you're not ready, then don't get pregnant.

  • I'm not bashing, I'm asking a genuine question.... why would a person feel they don't want to get married EVER? I understand with him being a little older wanting to get on with it. I think he needs to just find someone else who's in to the whole family/marriage thing and be done with it because you sound serious in your feelings and you are entitled to them, but he's obviously wanting something else so let him go find someone who will give him the family he wants if you don't want to give it to him. It's proven now that older men are at more risk for having downs babies etc the older they are too so maybe more men will start wanting to settle down earlier.
