starting a family

Looking for Family-Friendly Couples

My partner and I have decided we’re ready to start our family. The rest of our friends aren't settling down yet. His guy friends still chasing girls in bars and mine too focused on finding "Mr. Right." Do you think this sounds like a recipe for a problem in our relationship?

Is there a way to navigate to other couples building their families? I mentioned that to my partner and neither of us have no clue where to even connect with these people.


Wanting to Start a Family Now

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?
