Resisting commitment - donīt want children

If you or your partner are not wanting to have children, this could be a reason that one or both of you are commitment shy. It is very typical, once a couple is engaged or married, for relatives and friends to start hammering the couple about "when will you have kids??" If the couple cannot or does not want to have children, this can be a very unwelcome pressure.

If you and your partner are hesitant about commitment, talk about this issue and see if it might be part of the cause.
