My husband and I have been married for 2 1/2 years now and have been together for 5 years. When we first got together and really got serious, I informed him how important it was to me that I have children one day. At this time, he said "We will buy a house first and then have children." With that said I was okay with this. Over the last year I have expressed my feelings about wanting to start a family since I am going to be 27 this year. My husband was previously married and had a daughter with his first wife. She was born with Down Syndrome but is a bright and loving 7 year old. I love her like she is my own and have no reason not to. My husband doesn't show much interest in her unless I say that we are keeping her for the weekend or whenever. This really hurts me and I know it also hurts her.
I have seriously considered leaving my husband if he will not agree to having children with me. Every time I bring the subject up he gets really angry and asks me why do I always have to talk about it. I have told him that this is important to me. His response is that he has given me everything that I have asked for but this is not what he wants.
Please, someone help me! I feel like I am all alone and really have no one to talk to about this!
