Whether you want them or you don’t is totally fine. What’s not fine is pretending to be ready to have them when you’re not at all or saying that you’re fine remaining childless when you’re dying to hear the pitter patter of little feet. Kids aren’t something you can quickly change your mind about like a duvet comforter, dinner plan, or cell phone. Heck, even a zip code can be an easier thing to change than your mind about becoming a parent or not. It doesn’t matter how awesome someone is, if you two are at odds about procreating, you might want to step away before you reach an impregnable impasse.
