Hi, I'm Jessica and and new to this site. I have one 5 year old daughter, Maddie. I'm 41 years old and don't plan on having any more kids. My husband is very disappointed that we didn't have a 2nd. (Some things going on in my life kind of prohibited me from having another). Anyway, my husband thinks that my daughter is going to be lonely and when we die she'll have no one. I have 2 sisters and one brother and he has 1 sister. I am very close with my sisters. He just makes me feel so guilty that she is our only one. He's worried about her future and who will be there for her. I am not really worried. She is very outgoing and makes friends very easily. I told him that she could have some very close friends when she gets older that are almost like sisters to her. Is is so bad to only have one child? This is really putting a strain on our marriage.
