For example: Your with someone that you could possibly see yourself marrying down the road. Everything in the relationship is great, but he/she wants to have kids but you are sure you would rather not. If your against having kids, and are positive your views will never change, what would you do? Now what if you eventually wanted to have kids but your partner doesn't, do you cut your loses now rather than stick around to know that eventually the time will come that it would have to end if/when you are ready to have a family? My ex fiance and I didn't see eye to eye on this subject, and as you can imagine it caused problems between us. We weren't complete opposites, but didn't agree on when would be a good time to start a family. The relationship ended for other reasons, but it has been something I've always thought about. How did some of you handle situations like this? Maybe instead of starting a family, it was a difference in religion. Just something I wanted to throw out there and maybe get some semi-serious responces, rather than the usual OT replies.
