I DON’T WANT TO HAVE CHILDREN BUT MY WIFE DOES.
I’m a 33 year-old man and have been married to my wife for five years. When my wife and I were dating, I made it very clear that I didn’t ever want to have children and she said she was okay with it and during the first year of our marriage, we made a conscious and mutual decision of leading a childless life. While I still stick to the decision, my wife seemed to have changed her mind. She often complains that all her friends have children and she feels very lonely at times.
However, I don’t want to have children because I know that I am not cut out for the job of being a father. It’s a personal choice and my wife had once agreed for the same too. Now that she wants to have children and I don’t, it’s affecting our relationship. Please advise what should I do?
