    Before we got married we both agreed to two. Now that my daughter is almost two I brought it up to my husband. He says no. He's exhausted with the baby we have now and worried that he can't be a good father because he'll be spread too thin. He feels like our daughter needs most...

    The Late Alarm

    Throughout my adult life, I had never wanted children. I was never one of those women who "always knew they wanted to be a mom". I would have an occasional week-long "baby phase", where I would sort of want one, but that feeling would always pass. I felt like a committed...

    My husband and I have been married for 11 years. We met when I was 18 and he was 38. It was love at first sight, but when we started talking about the future, I was dismayed when he said he never wanted to have kids. I was young and in love and didn't think I needed kids as long...
