Am I wrong?

My hubby and I are happy and we have a beautiful three year old that wasn't planned but no regrets for either of us. We are finally in our own place as of Xmas 2010 and are planning this year to save some money. The only this is I want another baby very bad and he seems reluctant. I know in my head, he has good reasons in that we are now getting our feet back on the ground after three years of being broke, but sometimes I just wish he'd dream along with me, instead of always being the practical one. Am I wrong?

  • No you're not wrong for wanting another baby. I'm sure your child would also love someone to grow up with but sometimes getting back on your feet first is the best thing. Maybe you all can decide on a date once you are settled and happy with where your finances are. Ask him to meet you half way.

  • Come to a compromise. Get an emergency fund under your belts and then plan #2. Talk it over

  • It is not wrong to want your spouse to 'share your dreams'. If you want another baby I suggest you talk to him about it, and see if the 2 of you can come up with some kind of compromise or a 'time frame' for having another baby. Good luck!

  • You can dream as big as you want. But the partical way is the way to go.

  • sit down and talk to him about what you want and what he wants and see if you can meet in the middle and compromise.
