My husband had our almost 6 year old son at a young age, when he as born i had an IUD placed and we both agreed in 5 years after it was removed we could have a second child, Well the time came and went and i had it removed and the subject was brought up by me of course to him, so when can we have a baby?? He told me he does not want any more kids and how could we afford it. He told me the only way we could was for me to find another job that pays much better, get health insurance, and pay off some bills. Well i changed jobs, have health insurance and paid off some credit cards. At this point we have a few bills left but are financially stable. The conversation came up again after 6 months of not speaking about it and he finally said he does not want anymore kids and that one is enough. My heart is broken over this decision. I even tried to compromise with him that we didnt have to get pregnant until later this summer but he said it was still to early. I dont want a huge age difference between the kids and its climbing right up there. I dont know how to cope with this decision i have so much resentment towards him but could never leave him. What should i do, how do i cope? btw our son is amazing hes very easy going, very independant i dont want to see him grow up alone.
