This issue has been bothering me a lot and I am very confused on what to do.
We have been together for more than 2 years now and we hardly have issues, infact we are a perfect match or so I thought.
I am 26 while he is 35, we both working and I never disturb him for money, I take care of all my needs myself. He is very calm and peaceful, doesn’t hit me and I really admire him a lot. I on the other hand is also good, hardworking, not materialistic and all that makes a good woman.
So after thinking of our relationship thoroughly some weeks ago, I realised that there is really nothing stopping us from getting married this year or next. I decided to hear what he has to say because he never talked about us being or getting married. I also noticed that whenever he sees or hears about bad marriages he felt lucky he is not in yet. This always makes me feel bad because I know myself. I also wasn’t a fan of marriage before I met him because of so many bad men out there, but everything changed when I met my guy, he is what I want. The very first day we met, the first thought that came to my mind was ‘this is my him’ I don’t know why I had that thought being our first time meeting.
Anyways, few weeks ago I decided to ask him what his plans are. Are we in on a long thing or not? I got the shock of my life when he made me understand that he doesn’t want to be tied forever, he loves his space and the way nobody disturbs him. That he only wants a baby mama, he wants me to be the mother his kids but not in marriage. I was mad and I cried for days. He was even sounding like nothing is wrong with being a baby mama, maybe not but I just can’t.
Well, I made him understand that I can’t be a baby mama and it will also be hard for me to move on with another person. I’ve bonded so well with him and all that. And I also hate jumping from one man to another. I told him to talk to people who are in successful marriages and stop looking at the bad ones. Today when we were talking I asked him about it and he is still maintaining his stand on the mama.
I don’t want to give birth to kids that have 2 homes, I grew up like that(it took me lots of self discipline not to become useless) and wouldn’t want that kind of life for my kids, I want them to grow with their parents in ONE house. At the same time, I don’t want to lose my good man and relationship.
I need your opinions please.
