      Becoming parents are a huge responsibility and a great joy too.

      We got our first child 2 years after our wedding then another child after 2 years from the first. Both are grown up and lovely ladies holding professional jobs.First child was ceasarean delivery (bridge) and second child natural birth. I was there supporting her and cried too ... as I saw the suffering she gone through I had a vasectomy.

      You must spend equal effort/time to raise the child. We were both financially capable and had a live-in helper but we took care of the children ourselves. The joy was the roster we had on who to feed the baby at night.

      Cheers.

      I would say unless there is a really big reason for you not to then if it's just something that you're not sure about I would do it depends on how many children you have and what you agreed on before marriage I'm in the similar situation except my husband took away the option to have another child without asking for my opinion after we agreed to have more than one and you waited till it was too late for me to start somewhere else and this has broken my heart and it's breaking our marriage but again we had agreed upon beforehand so I guess it depends

    My husband's gone off sex, we haven't been intimate in over 6 months, but he won't even admit there's a problem. Any advice?

    Wife had an affair, but I want to forgive and try again. Problem is I can't seem to forget and I bring it up when we argue. How do I move on?

      Your wife must be aware of her mistake so you bringing it up again in arguments will only torture her. When a partner in a relationship cheats it natural that it takes time to trust him/her again and it takes a lot of effort for both. I would also suggest to see a third person to help you, counselling is probably the best idea.

      You can’t forgive if you can’t forget look at affairs and jealousy lots of people have been through it, get some counselling.

      Have you sat down and really talked about why the affair happened, is there an aspect of your relationship that caused this in the first place? Counseling may help you reconcile your feelings.

    I'm 19 and pregnant by my boyfriend of 3 years. We're overjoyed, but everyone tells us we're too young. Will we cope as young parents?

      Sure, you will be able to cope as young parents; even older parents need support from family and friends whhen they have a baby. Three years is a good length of time to know someone quite well. Good luck for both of you!

      Of course - you have more energy than older parents. This is a magical time don’t let others spoil it for you

      Becoming a parent is not easy and you will need support when it comes to money for example - but that's the same for most parents. If you're both committed you will be able to cope.

        You will cope even if you do it all yourself, i was in the same position and the same age, it worked for a year then we split and i brought my daughter up myself, with no help from any one, it turns out we are so close, and she always tells ,me im a brill mum, attimes i would cry and climb the walls but its worth it and its hard. You will be fine, good luck x

      I know that what i am about to say may not be something you want to here but its going to be best for the both of you. If he says he has moved on then maybe it's best for you to try and do the same. Its not good for you to hold onto someone who as moved on its not right for you to have the pain that is going to come when you see or hear about him having someone new when what you really want is for that person to be you. so save yourself from that pain and let go after all if you loose something or someone it just means you was meant to find something better and who knows maybe someday you will realize that all of what you had wasn't all of what you thought it could or would be. you'll find someone who's right for you but you can't do so if you hold onto someone that has already let go.

      I do think he may have given you his answer. What would you need to do to accept this and move on yourself?

    Is it unreasonable for me to ask my partner to let me know when they get home from a party late at night when I'm away on business?

        My partner has a drinking problem which causes concern while I'm away. So trust isn't an issue. Safety is. I stay up worrying that my partner gets home safely.
