I have been married to my husband for a year, but we have been together for 6 years. He is a good man and we have a great marriage. He has 5 children, SD20, SS20 (twins), SD19, SD12 and SS9. I have one child, BS10. He is a great stepdad to my son as his bio dad lives in TX and is not very much involved.
For the past few months, I have been wanting us to have a child of our own. I am 29, and he is in his early 40s. I see that we are in two different stages of life at this point. He has had a vasectomy and at one point discussed reversing it but we didn't touch on the subject again. As I approach 30, I am sad at the thought of only having one child. I know he doesn't want any more children, and who would when they already have five, lol.
The only child we have in the house is my BS10 and my two younger skids every other weekend. I have tried talking to him about it but he is firm with his decision.
I feel like I need to get over this. I don't want this to weigh down an otherwise great marriage. I have become really depressed over this. SD19 just had a baby and while I am so happy for them, I am so sad that I will never experience this with my husband. Divorce is not an option so I was hoping someone can advise how to move forward?
