Are there any men who've had similar feelings to my partner... I'd love to hear a man's perspective on this...

I think the depression and mood swings obviously need to be managed. Sounds like he's making an effort but not found the solution that works for him.

Thing is those issues, unresolved, would remain if you ended an intimate relationship. You'd still be dealing with him on one level or another.

And unfortunately those feelings he has have a chance to be compounded if you split.

Only advice I can muster is he's thinking you trapped him into what ? The joy of watching a new person embark on a voyage of life.

Life is what you make it and being a parent is about the future not the past.

Thank you Voyage smile
I agree, the issues, unresolved, are going to be with me forever. I'm certainly not in the mind to slam the door and not put him on the Birth Cert, as some have suggested.
