  • For me, he'd have to prove himself before I'd have a child with him. I'd have to be with him for some time before bringing a child into the relationship based on words alone (him saying he'll stay together)

  • I was 37 with my first and then 39 with my second just make sure you listen to the doctor go to all your appointments and take your prenatals. GL I wish happiness God Bless!

  • I am 35, divorced, and have been with my SO for over a year. I plan on having children with him. I wanted to be done having children when I turned 35, but that's not what life had in store for me. For me, yes, if I loved him, I would have a chlid that late in life.

  • I am 34 with a 7 year old and have met a great guy who will be 40 next year. He doesn't want kids and I don't really want another one either, so he is a great match for me! If he did want a child we would have to have a nice long talk about it... :)

  • Do you already have children? How old are they? If yes, how do they feel about it? How old is this other guy? If he's in his 40's and never married, then why hasn't he ever been married?

  • Not unless we were married and the relationship, after a time, felt stable enough to bring a child into the family.
