Hi! My husband and I have a 3 year old son together. He has a 9 year old daughter by someone else. I've always wanted 2 children of my own bUT he's not having it. I really want to try for a girl, I don't want my son growing up by himself. Sometimes it makes me sad to even talk about it. I feel that our family will be complete. Does anyone have any tips on possibly persuading him?

Yes that's true. This is why I just don't bring the situation up. But when he does it confuses me.

That can be his reason. What you consider a good reason and what he considers a good reason can be different. You can not force the man to have another child with you.

His answer is he just doesn't want anymore. Which isn't a good answer for me. I don't bring it up anymore but he does.

Does he give you a reason for not wanting another child? There is not any way to force anyone to do things they do not want to. You two needed to have already decided on this before you got married. You should still sit down and calmly ask why he is not wanting to have more kids.
