A slightly different post from me today and a rather personal one from me. With our 3rd wedding anniversary fast approaching – it’s Thursday this week we are preparing to celebrate. We have actually been together almost 7 years and when I say how long we have been together people are like when will you have children? Now Paul and I would love to have children, and one day we will because there is nothing that we both want more than to have children together, however I’m going to explain.
Now we are struggling to move out, it is incredibly expensive in the South East, I mean it would be a dream if we could move out however we are super lucky that we have a whole level of my mum’s house to ourselves.
I know for a fact that my Mum wants a grandchild, I mean I’m not even pregnant yet and she wants one.
We want to wait a few more years though, with my mental health it has improved so much, and I’m honest amazed at how far I’ve come. I’m off medication, I don’t go to therapy anymore and I go out quite freely on my own, which I never would have done about 2 and a half years ago.
Paul and I love being together, our marriage is so strong and we are so happy together, and honestly being a parent would absolutely complete us. I don’t think I have ever met someone who is so much like me yet so different. I know that sounds odd ,however we are literally like 2 peas in a pod, we are so alike it hurts and not only that we have the most ridiculous sense of humour.
When people ask us that question though and I give them a response of we are waiting a bit longer, they look surprised. I mean we would have children tomorrow if it was possible but we also have to think of what a child brings, they cost money and we want to make sure we can afford it. We both feel emotionally ready to have children, it is a conversation that we have had quite a lot, unfortunately moving out has to be a priority right now. Once we have done that and we are settled then it’s babies maybe?
We are only 24 and 26, my parents didn’t have me till they were 27, it will happen.
Have you ever been asked this question about when you’re going to have children or get married? Let me know in the comments!
