Shaky marriage and baby or pregnancy

Anonymous

We've always wanted one more baby. We have a 4 year old.

We've been in marriage counseling for 8 months. We had to stop because our work schedules are opposite now so we haven't been in 2 months. DH was out of work for 6 months and got a job 2 months ago.

I will be 38 this summer and didn't want to become pregnant after 36 because of risks. So given the shaky marriage and my age now WWYD just not have another kid? I never thought this would happen.

Idk that's a tough one. I'd do whatever feels right to you. If it were me, I wouldn't chance it.

Thanks. I know and I've also thought we could adopt once things are worked out.

A baby makes a good marriage better and a bad marriage worse.
I would not have a baby at this time. Good luck.

Thank you, I was thinking of signing up for counseling with a different counselor who can meet more often & on a Saturday due to our weird schedules. He has an interview for a job that would create a better schedule anyway and I hope he gets it.
