so my best friend has been with her S.O. for about 4 or 5 years now.. and she is my age 23 and he is 42.. she had a beautiful baby girl in august and he has two other boys from his previous marriage.. He says he is done having kids.. but she doesn't know.. she thinks she may want more kids in the future.. She was confiding in me the other day and she feels like if he doesn't want to have more kids and she does that.. that is a deal breaker for their relationship .. which i agree.. I wasn't exactly thrilled when she first started dating him due to his age but I have come to really love him just like i love her.. and i know he makes her happy so im very supportive but i can't help but to think that their relationship wont last because i know she truly wants more kids. She normally comes to me with her problems and i am kind of preparing myself for when she comes to me with this one.. she doesn't know i am pregnant with my second yet.. we were waiting to tell everyone.. well we decided we are telling everyone on fathers day.. and i know that she will be very happy for me but at the same time i know she will be sad because of her situation with her bf. We also have been talking alot about marriage due to the fact that she is my maid of honor.. she says she never wants to marry her boyfriend.. and that really threw me.. she said that if she had to leave him there wouldn't be any hassle if they weren't married.. ( as far as paperwork and getting a divorce). I honestly was shocked! i know she loves him and i honestly didn't know she felt that way. I asked her why she would stay with him if this is how she felt.. and she said she does love him but they are having problems ( disagreeing about kids and he drinks) As anyone ever had an experience similar to this?
