Wanting to Start a Family Now

Being Dad Team's picture


We've been married for three years. Before marriage my husband and I did discuss wanting to have a family someday (at least three kids).

Now each time now that I try to talk about trying it seems that he has an excuse of why "now" isn't a good time. I'm in my thirties and am concerned about running into problems conceiving.

I feel resentful as his reasons are selfish. It would interfere with our travel plans, (those I'd give up easily), wanting to buy a bigger house (we have 3 bedrooms), and now even citing "the economy."

Any advice to help me understand?
