Would getting pregnant be a good idea when we almost got divorced?

My husband just got back from being deployed and before he left he said he wanted a divorce. He said he was done with me and our 5 year old son. While he was gone i found out that he was talking to some other girl about them living together and them wanting to get married and having kids together. He called me a few months after he left for deployment and told me about the girl and apologized and wanted to make things work between us. He said he was wrong and he knows he hurt me.He told me he said the things he did because he was scared about going to the place they were sending him. He is back now and things are good. We are talking more and working through our stuff but he wants another child. I want another baby eventually but i dont know if after everything with an almost divorce that me getting pregnant would be a good idea right now.

Thanks everyone. Turns out he got home from deployment and gave it a month and a half and found another girl to work it out with. Glad I didnt give into that one.

I think you need to take things slowly, give yo self enough time to study the situation before getting pregnant. Sometimes men move out thinking there's peace out there, but eventually things fail and they decide to go back to their wives, so ma friend be calm, he's yo man.

I would wait awhile... My parents were on the verge on getting a divorce and thought a baby would fix it.... 3 more children later they are divorced and fighting a NASTY custody battle

i would take it slow. it seems like you arent comfortable with the idea of another kid at the moment and i dont blame you. The things he said and did dont just go away with an I'm sorry baby

I would give it a year at least before you try to have another baby. In case it doesn't work, you don't want another baby on top of the issues you already have.
