Dear Carolyn: I’ve been married only a year, but it has been far from the honeymoon experience.
Before marriage, my husband and I talked about children, and I thought we were on the same page. We discussed how we would raise our children and even considered a prenuptial agreement around our future children.
He mentioned that one of the reasons he was willing to marry me is because he could see me having his kid(s). This is a man who broke up two prior long-term relationships because he was too young and couldn’t imagine having children with those partners, so I took his word seriously.
