Struggling With Relationship Deal Breakers

"Are Our Problems Deal Breakers?"

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

I've been in a relationship with the same guy for a year now. Things were going well — he was respectful, smart, and funny, and we get along really well. Except for recently. The honeymoon phase is definitely over. He didn't do anything for my birthday — no card, no dinner, nothing. This really upset me, and I addressed it right away. He apologized and realized what a terrible thing it was, but he has yet to actually act on his words.

Because of this, I've pretty much put our relationship under a microscope, analyzing it and breaking it down. One of the things I've realized is that our views don't align on the subject of having children. I told him from the beginning that I didn't want to have kids., and he told me he used to not want children, but his views have changed as he's gotten older. He's nine years older than me, and he said that my feelings on children may change as well. I'm on the fence as to whether this relationship actually has any lasting power. Are these issues deal breakers in a relationship?
