I think people just worry that you’ll get in over your head because of what a big commitment it is. When you think you have the money and security to raise a family, then you do it. I support you :) Lord knows there are worse mothers out there
Thanks, friend. I don’t know; to me it really just seems like people think it’s not as “real” of a goal. I know that I do need the money, but I think security is an illusion,. I don’t mind not being a homeowner when I get pregnant, or being unmarried. I do want a stable relationship so that my children can have a good father, but I feel like I already have that… I’ve been with Tim for 7 years and we both plan on spending the rest of our lives together.
Of course, he doesn’t want to have kids yet because of his goals, so mine are immediately pushed back and deemed secondary… which is another huge part of my frustration.
