I am coming up 29 years old and have been seeing my partner 1 year, 3 months. About 6-9 months ago, we talked about our futures and what we wanted. I supposed it was a decision time, do you continue, or not. We wanted the same thing, including a family in the same time frames. (approx 2 years). Now, over 1 year into the relationship, he has decided he NEVER wants children. I do. It may seem an easy decision but it isnt. We love eachother. There are a few other problems in the relationship which are his selfishness and non compromise on things that matter to me and make me happy. It seems like his way or the highway on everything in life. Again, this isnt easy, I love him, and amongst the other difficulties which Im sure all relationships have, the children things is a turning point. Should I even consider compromising? He wont commit to me if I do compromise, (i.e. engagement) so it seems plain and simple that he doesnt care about what is important to me. Or am I being too selfish and stubborn myself? Or maybe I am confusing stubborness for strength. Any help is appreciated, thanks all for your time.
