  • I would hang in there just a little longer & see how the economy goes first, but don't give up on the idea of having another child. If things don't seem to change in another year then you can make that decision again to work on having a baby or waiting. If the economy gets worse you may find yourselves in a more difficult situation. Best wishes on the choice you make!

  • Wait it out, definitely. The economy may get worse fast.

  • Sit down and explain to him how important it is to you...look at your budget and see where another child would put you. If now is not the right time for your own biological child, maybe down the road when your financial situation gets better you can adopt. There are many children that need loving families. Money is the #1 reason for divorce, so that is a major decision to make. You don't want to put a strain on your current relationship/family.
