Having children is a huge decision for anyone to make. Bringing a human into the world is quite the responsibility, and honestly it's not for everyone. In the past, it has been generally understood that the natural progression of life is: go to college, get a job, find love, get married, have kids, eat hamburger helper together as one happy family. But now more than ever, some people are opting out of childbearing.
A woman who posted on the 'Am I the Asshole' (AITA) page of reddit is well aware of the importance of communicating with your partner about this topic. In her post, she says that she told her fiancé that she didn't want kids from day one. And he agreed. Perfect. But now he has changed his mine. Uh oh.
Just to be clear, this post isn’t about whether I’m an asshole for disliking children, it is about whether I’m an asshole for refusing to try therapy.
From the start I made it clear to my fiancé I did not want children. I have made this clear with every person I have dated. He did not have any issues with it whatsoever and said he liked pros of a child free life.
