I know of one married couple where the husband does not want children. To be fair to the man, he had made it very clear to his partner before marriage about this condition. He had given her reasons why he did not want children. He felt he would not be a good father. Maybe the actual reason was he was not prepared to handle any emotional entanglements? She accepted his condition and went ahead and married him. This woman is very fond of children. She pets, cuddles and spoils her cousin’s daughter. She is fun to be around with. She has a career of her own, is the jet setting type, has a very understanding husband, but there are no child/children in the house. This condition on his part is strange, because he too is good with children.
I wonder how she accepted this condition. She is obviously very much in love with this man. In fact she had loved him a long time, then had married him. They are a fun couple. He is very well placed, they have all the material things in life. The only thing missing is the presence of a child.
She has never revealed any other reason why her husband does not want a child, except he feels he will not be a good father. She has accepted that totally. But does she miss having one?
