Husband Doesn't Want More Children

Group Therapy: I Want More Kids, but My Husband Doesn't

This question is from a Group Therapy post in our TrèsSugar Community. Add your advice in the comments!

Hi . . . for those of you who think I am selfish with this feeling, I am sorry, but I need a little advice. I am happily married to the love of my life for four years now. We have a lovely 1.5-year-old toddler; however, being an only child, I did not have a smooth childhood and I always felt lonely. I really wanted a big family, but my husband who comes from a big family never wanted any kids.

I have talked about it with him, but he is adamant. I can not leave him because he won't give me another child, but I want my girl to have a sibling to grow up with, have secrets with, share all those siblingly things with. I want her not to be lonely and to have a blood relative when we the parents die . . . am I pushing my luck with my husband? He is a good man, but if he says enough, he means just that. He loves our daughter, but I want another child too without losing my lovely husband.
