My boyfriend has a 17 year old child. He is in his early 40's. I am almost 37 and have no children. I have always wanted children. My boyfriend's concerns are being an older parent. We aren't getting married until next year and were thinking of adopting for reasons I don't really want to get into here. He is concerned he will be around 45ish or so by the time we adopt. He just told me yesterday he isn't sure he wants to do this. I love my boyfriend very much and I know he is the one for me and he is the one I want to spend the rest of my life with. I don't want to pressure him into something he isn't sure he wants (being an older parent) but yet I am not sure if I can be completely happy without having kids. I am the type of person who believes everything happens for a reason. I am just wondering your thoughts on this??
