Who do you turn to? (3 replies)

As a lot of people here will know, the decision not to have children might not always be the one that you would have chosen if you had another option.

You will need to talk to people, this is undoubtable, but who do you choose? Do you have a good enough relationship with your partner so that you can discuss it, or do you have to go to friends and family?

My husband is also my best friend and so we discuss the issue openly and very often. Now that we have come to terms with not having children, we even manage to make light of the situation and by doing so we have made the subject less toxic.

I have a friend who has always been really understanding. One of the main problems that I have is the fact that I have made this choice rather than having it made for me, and there are a lot of people who think that I am odd for that choice. So having somebody who understands how I feel is perfect, so we can chat about our choices together.

I'm find with my choice for the majority of the time, but when I do have a bit of a wobble I talk to my partner. We sit down together and just remind each other why we feel the way we do, and why we are making the right choice here. It doesn't happen much anymore, but it's great that we have each other to talk to.
