I’m 23, my boyfriend is 29, we’ve been together for 3 years. Both of us were adamant about not wanting children. Last week, he has this huge talk with me about what he wants, he wants kids. I’m 23, I’m just starting college, we live in a crappy apartment, and he’s talking about babies within 2 years. I want to go to school, I want to work in my field for a few years, I want to get married to him, I want a house with him, and I want to travel in Canada from coast to coast with him. I don’t want to be buying stocks in Pampers and Enfamil within the next 2 to 5 years! I also told him he hasn’t really shown me that he can be a father, he doesn’t help me with dishes, laundry, tidying up, the most basic responsibilities, why would I want to have a baby with someone who can’t even help clean up our crap-artment? Am I being selfish? He says this could be a deal-breaker for our relationship, is that fair?
