I’ve spoken to a few men who have the wish to have children, but their partners weren’t ready for this. It seems kind of rare, but it happens. These men exists. Men who are fond of children and would like to raise their own. The question in this is if their partners will be ready at some point. Their feeling is they won’t be ready, but meanwhile they stick with their partners. It takes a lot of strength to go one’s own way and leave a relationship in which years were invested. Yes, there are good times shared, but a long-lasting healthy love relationship is based on common family goals. What do you both need and desire in this relationship? Ask yourself and then ask your partner. Start the conversation and after having shared your thoughts, decide in which direction you want to go together or by yourself.
