I Want a Baby and Now My Husband Says He Doesn't Want Children!

Group Therapy: I Want a Baby and Now My Husband Says He Doesn't Want Children!

This question comes from Group Therapy in our TrèsSugar Community. Feel free to add your advice in the comments!

My husband and I have been married for 2 1/2 years now and have been together for 5 years. When we first got together and really got serious, I informed him how important it was to me that I have children one day. At this time, he said "We will buy a house first and then have children." With that said I was okay with this. Over the last year I have expressed my feelings about wanting to start a family since I am going to be 27 this year. My husband was previously married and had a daughter with his first wife. She was born with Down Syndrome but is a bright and loving 7 year old. I love her like she is my own and have no reason not to. My husband doesn't show much interest in her unless I say that we are keeping her for the weekend or whenever. This really hurts me and I know it also hurts her.

I have seriously considered leaving my husband if he will not agree to having children with me. Every time I bring the subject up he gets really angry and asks me why do I always have to talk about it. I have told him that this is important to me. His response is that he has given me everything that I have asked for but this is not what he wants.

Please, someone help me! I feel like I am all alone and really have no one to talk to about this!
