Cannot Agree When to Have Children

Group Therapy: We Cannot Agree When to Have Children

This question is from a Group Therapy post in our TrèsSugar Community. Add your advice in the comments!

We have been married a year and a half and I have a 6-year-old daughter. We are both 26 years old, and he has been a great stepdad. Before we married, he had said he wanted siblings for my daughter to grow up with and I agreed and wanted more children as well. Now he has changed his mind and said he doesn't want children until he is at least 30. He wants to start his own business, which could take years, and doesn't want children until he feels personally satisfied with himself. I'm trying to be understanding, I just didn't imagine having children into my 30s and I feel sad that my daughter is going to miss out on the family life I've so desperately wanted for her. We cannot seem to find common ground, and I feel devastated. Any advice is welcome.
