    My boyfriend keeps going back

    and forth on wanting kids. I love him and I want him to want a family with me, because not wanting kids is a deal breaker. But he keeps changing his mind and I don't know what to do about it.

    this really strong desire to get married and have kids. I know my boyfriend wants those things, but I also know that it won't be for a while. Sometimes I wonder if one of the reasons is that my parents are both on the older side (Mom is almost 62, dad just turned 65) and I know...
