The Question Club
Two people fall madly in love, and only more so when they both realize that they never want kids. Their nieces and nephews are great, but being a parent is something that doesn't appeal to them at all. They get married and have a great relationship for a few years (for the purpose of this question 4-7 years), until one decides that maybe being a parent wouldn't be so bad. They don't really fight over it, but the one who has changed their mind drops little hints and grows restless in the relationship.|
#1. If you're the person who changes your mind [decides you do want kids], do you try to convince your child-free spouse of the many reasons having a baby would be awesome, accept the fact that you got married under different terms and let the idea of having your own baby go, or do you call it quits with your longtime partner? Why?
#2. If you're the person whose spouse changed their mind, but you still don't want kids, do you listen to your spouse's points of reason on the having kids debate and seriously consider having kids, expect your partner to go through this as a phase and return to their original "don't wanna be a parent" view, or do you call it quits with them? Why?
#3. What is something you feel very passionate about, to the point of leaving your longterm partner/spouse (again, 4-7 years) without regret, if they changed their mind? srs and non srs.
DK/DC: How loud does your alarm have to be for you to wake up?
I had my alarm turned all the way up this morning and didn't wake up once...in the hour it went off. I'm a little scared that I might not hear an intruder or the fire alarm, now...
