We disagree about having more children!

My partner wants another child, not necessarily immediately but he would love to have more kids eventually.
The problem is, I don't feel like I want any more.
We already have one kid together and we went through a bad miscarriage last year, together with some financial and work related issues I completely reconsidered what I want from the future and I don't see us having a new baby anytime soon ( or ever).
Have you been in a similar position and how did you work it out?

I would make your feelings as to why clear, I'm so sorry to hear about your miscarriage, my heart goes out to you <3 these are genuine reasons, I wouldn't straight up say never, just say you have things to focus on more at the moment and that the effect of the miscarriage is still there and you just need time

There is no working it out really, one of you has to accept the viewpoint of the other. Since your partner can't force you to have another child, as long as you don't want another one it won't be happening. If he can't live with that then he'll have to consider whether it's worth continuing with the relationship.

Whatever you do, don't have another baby just to suit him. Please.
