Baby or No Baby - When You Disagree

Are you in a situation where one of you wants a baby and the other doesn't? I just watched a video from the Huffington Post, based off an article they had regarding this issue, here is a link if you would like to watch it:
From the article:
Clearly, couples should discuss and negotiate the baby question (and all other pivotal issues) before making a serious commitment, although there is no guarantee that one person's feelings won't change later on.
When one person desperately wants a child and the other desperately doesn't, the situation can't be handled by compromise. I've seen people try it, and it doesn't work.
You can read the complete article here: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/08/08/baby-or-no-baby_n_1753471.html
In the first story from the video, it sounded like his ex-girlfriend was continually hoping that he would change his mind, and both of them pushed off confronting the issue rather than dealing with it. It's not an easy situation to be in at all, because like their story, sometimes this disagreement means an end to the relationship.
Do you agree with the author's opinion that you can't find a compromise in this situation, is it an all or nothing deal?
