    Just for fun! So hypothetically, waay into the future when you're wanting to settle down, you find your soulmate and want to spend the rest of your lives with each other, but you find out he doesn't want kids. Stay with him or leave for the option of having kids?

    There is no such thing as a "soulmate" and "real love" doesn't exist.

    if i had actually found my soulmate and they was perfect and everything i wanted and they thought the same about me. Then i would stay.

    Anyway, i could persuade them sooner or later :P

    Like someone else has said, depends on how much you want kids..and on his personality

    Kids will always be there....but as much as you're currently "in love", will he? You take the risk of him leaving you when you're about 40-50 and at that stage you can't have any kids, you gave up something you really wanted for him and it turns out he wasn't worth it, and you're left with absolutely nothing

    Just thought I'd give an optimistic view on the topic

    if he definitely wasn't ever going to change his mind then leave him and have children. the love you have for your children is the truest, more indiscriminate, never ending love that exists.
    Plus no matter how much you love a person there will always be someone else out there for you, I know a lot of people don't like to admit that and get quite offended by it but it's not like there's one person in the whole world who can make you happy.

    bitter much?

    :rolleyes:
    Nah, I've got a new gf and I'm rich. I've got nothing to be bitter about atm. I still don't believe in crap such as soulmates etc. It's just my opinion.

    lmao! Nooo not personally but I've seen a hell of a lot of bad relationships/relationship endings in a number of generations, and just have a pessimistic outlook on relationships I guess :p: or realistic as I'd put it :p:

    Kids stick around more often than men do, so it is the second option for me.

    Anyway, I'd probably end up resented him in the end. It is natural for a woman to want and have children.
