Original Visitor's Question from a 31-40 year old Female
My boyfriend and i have only been together for just over 6 mths! everything is great between us and he says he sees us being long term, theres only one thing and thats that he doesnt want children or to get married! These are things that i feel very strongly about and asked him that if we ever got to that stage would he be prepared to give them to me especially children, he said at that at this point in his life this is how he feels and doesnt think it will change! He said that no matter how much he loves me he will let me go and get on with my life so that i can have these things with someone else!
I believe that if some one loves you than they would do anything for that person but he has different beliefs and now im stuck..... should i stay or should i go no matter how good things are or how much we love each other? What do i do?
User Submitted Advice from a 21-30 year old Female
The only thing you can do is to break up. I have been down the same path at 26 years of age, and to continue this relationship in the hopes that he might change is ridiculous. I know it sounds black and white, but either of you will ever be happy, there will be resentement on one part whatever happens and that is not healthy! end things now, because this will eat you up, and better it end now, than you hold out for him, he doesn't change his mind, and you are barron!
if you don't want to give up on him..... the more you pester him the less he will want it, believe me. good luck
