No one is guaranteed children. And when you marry someone 45 years old who doesn't have any, I'm guessing you would have discussed that issue at length and made your peace with the othr person's wishes before you say "I do."

I don't think it's willy nilly..very hard decision. It is unfair to the other person but you gotta look out for yourself first and decide if it's more unfair to you to be in something that you dont want and will regret forever, I don't think that would help the relationship either. This reminds me of Friends where Monica has to break up with Richard who is in love with because she wants kids and he doesn't(although they werent married).

I mean, my husband and I separated when I was 35 and four years later, I'm still not divorced! I'm so glad I wasn't on a time table hoping to remarry and have more kids...

You just never know how something like that will work out.
