I want a baby...

So, I'm 32 OH is 45... been together for five years and happy. I love him with all my heart and he treats me like an absolute Queen. We both have decent jobs that we enjoy and financially stable. I can't imagine myself with anyone else. OH has three grown up children; 22, 19 and 15 all from previous relationships. He's a brilliant father and provides for them all. I get on great with them all too.

Only issue is.... I'm desperate to have a child. I've spoken to him about this and he's categorically told me he's too old to start over. He says how I'd make a fantastic mum and gets that I really want a child, but theres no way he'd agree.

I'm so confused because I'm 32, and my time slot is running out fast! I love this man with all my heart but theres just this emptiness that I can't seem to shake and that's the love I have to give to my own child. I honestly don't know what to do.

Firstly he hasn't got three grown up children. One of them is only 15. Secondly, you're not going to get a family of your own if you stay with this man. You need to move on...whilst you have time.

This is one of those situations where you HAVE to accept the situation . He has three kids ....he doesn't want any more ....that isn't going to change, no matter how much YOU want them.

It takes two to make a baby and in your case there is only one who is willing to do it. You have two choices - stay with him and never have any children , or move on and find a man who does want them. It's up to you what you do - there are no other options for you. Good luck.
