To have or not have a baby



November 20, 2018 - 11:17 AM

Dear Carolyn: My partner wants a baby and I don’t, and because we are same-sex there would be some difficulty involved in having one.

After many frustrating conversations, we have decided we will not have one. I see this as nothing more than sticking to our default state of childlessness, but my partner clearly thinks I have gotten my way and feels owed something in return.

I suggested adopting a new pet and that provoked anger, snide remarks, and tears.
