Hello Ladies, So here it goes! Im 28 and my DH is 27 and we married in August this year and we have been together for nearly 6 years. Before the wedding we decided we were going to start to try in November. Well it was more like I suggested and he agreed! Unfortunately I was made redundant 3 days after returning to work after the honeymoon . . . I KNOW!!! My DH now thinks that since Im not working at the moment that we shouldnt even try. As much as I try to explain to him that it could take over a year to conceive he still isnt buying it. He says that he doesnt make enough to support a wife and a baby. I say he does! He makes £1500 a month, we dont have car payments as we own our vehicle outright, we dont have mortgage or pay rent as our lovely 3 bedroom house was given to us by his father as a wedding gift. His personal bills total about £300 a month and mine total about £350. His father pays for heating oil to be topped up every 3 months so we dont have that expense either. We dont have the big bills that most couples have to contend with. On top of everything i found out recently that £200 is deposited every month into his bank account from his fathers! (his family is loaded) I have always talked about the baby thing, he has never initiated a conversation about having a baby. He acts like it makes him uncomfortable. Even after he proposed, talking about the wedding made him uncomfortable and we couldnt have a proper conversation about it without giggling like 15 year olds. We got the wedding planned none the less and had a perfect day. He actually says now that he loves being married! Is he using the whole "I cant afford a baby" as an excuse to delay everything because he thinks he isnt ready? As most of his income is disposable I think he isnt ready to give it all up to start a family. Can someone please give me thier opinion on what they think is going on? Am I crazy for thinking that we could get away with only one of us working?
