I don't want to be a mother, how can I stop him asking?
The best way to stop him is for you to stop avoiding the subject! This is a conversation you need to have.
I have a problem. My man keeps hinting about babies and I’m just not interested. I have a fantastic, well-paid job and I’m not ready to jack it in to have kids. He keeps coming up with all these daft names he likes and asking if they go well with his surname. It’s turning me right off and so I just avoid the subject now. How can I stop him?
The best way to stop him is for you to stop avoiding the subject! This is a conversation you need to have - and it’s not fair to either of you to put it on hold. It’s OK not to want children if that’s how you feel - many women feel the same way - but it’s not OK if your partner doesn’t realise this, and he’s expecting to have them as a matter of course.
You need to work out where you stand on the whole issue, and then discuss it as honestly as possible, so there aren’t any misunderstandings. If you know you never want kids, and he’s as broody as he sounds, you may both need to rethink your relationship. Alternatively, if you think you may feel differently in a few years’ time, by talking it through, you can at least make some proper plans for the future.
