I'm just curious to see what your opinions would be about who has the right to make the choice of having another child or not in a relationship.
I'll use my family as an example:
Me and my fiance have a little girl who is 14 months, after i had her i felt like i would like another one, my fiance on the other hand has made it clear that he doesn't want another child. At first i found this quite difficult to come to terms with as i'm only 23 and felt like i had just made all my eggs redundant (probably stupid i know) but now 14 months have past and i feel pretty much fine about it, things feel cosy and i like the way life is, i'm enjoying working towards making a better future for our little girl. Even if my fiance did end up saying that we could try for another baby i would only want to if he was 100%, our little girl was concieved with love and with both of us wanting a baby, if we were to have another one that's how i would want that baby to be concieved, not just due to one of us giving in.
So in your opinion if one person wants a child and another doesn't where is the even ground? How would you compromise?
