If your s/o didn't want kids in the beginning would you have continued your relationship with him ?

  • Depending on how adamant he was about it, probably not... Having kids was important to me, so if he was 100% sure he didn't want any, that would have been a deal breaker, yes.

  • I already had kids when I met my SO who is now my hubby....if he didn't want kids..nope I wouldn't have been with him, I wanted more kids..and he wanted kids. So I have two from a previous relationship and two with him.

  • Not if my goal in life was to have children. Some women dream of being a mom while others never really think about it. If I knew I wanted X number of children and the man I was with didn't, I don't think I could continue the relationship. I would hate to resent him as time passed and his mind didn't change KWIM..

  • Luckly he did want kids. But if he didn't that would be a hard one because we didn't talk about kids until after we were engaged so by that time I was in love with him and then if I found out after that, that he did't want kids I am not sure what I would have done because I so much wanted to have kids. I use to babysit and I was really involved in the kids at my church so I don't know I would have to say I probably wouldn't have if I new before we got married now if it were after I mean I am not going to divorce him over it.

  • I wouldn't have married a man that did NOT want kids

  • When I married my husband, neither of us wanted kids, he already had 4 and I was young and was sure I would never want to. Thank goodness he relented when I changed my mind. We now have 2, I don't know where we would be now or what kind of relationship we would have had if he never changed his mind.
