“My boyfriend does not believe in children. He thinks that the world is over populated, so doesnt want them which is fine with me. I don’t like kids and don’t want them either. We have a good life. We have fun, travel, and do amazing things together, and for the first time in my life, I can see myself getting married to this amazing man. But what if in ten years I change my mind? I somehow grow a maternal bone in my body and actually want to start a family I’d be losing one love for another kind of love. Is it worth ruining a good thing?” – Claire
@CrazyJewishMom: Girl, live in the moment. You love him, marry him. Ten years is a long time. He could get run over by a bus, or maybe HE will suddenly want babies and become Mr. Sperminator. But take my advice, freeze your lovely, young eggs now while they are still fresh. Just in case.
@KateESiegel: I disagree with my mom (aka Captain Ovary). It sounds like you’re already a little conflicted about whether or not you actually want children, so you need to sort out your feelings before you make a commitment. Talk to him; see if there’s flexibility. If it’s really a deal breaker for this guy, you need to seriously think about whether or not that’s a life you’d be happy living. It may well be! Just don’t commit yourself to this man expecting him to fundamentally change.
@CrazyJewishMom: Also, condoms break. Especially if you poke holes in them. Just sayin’!
