“We want dif­fer­ent things”

Glamour (South Africa) - - Life -

Jil­lian, 33, en­gaged “I’d love to have kids, but I’ve re­cently dis­cov­ered that my fi­ancé, who has a son from a pre­vi­ous re­la­tion­ship, doesn’t want any more. We’ve never talked about it be­fore now. I naively as­sumed that we wanted the same thing, so I didn’t bring it up ear­lier. We’re at a cross­roads, but ev­ery time we try to have a con­ver­sa­tion about it, we don’t get any­where and change the sub­ject. I’m hop­ing I can change his mind, but maybe that’s just wish­ful think­ing. But in 20 or 30 years time, will I re­sent him for not want­ing to have chil­dren?”
