Hey there, is it normaliens. The older I get, now 29, I'm beginning to wonder if my aversion to marriage and sexually transmitted children is going to be a recurring problem for me. I was in a relationship with a great girl for 6 years that ended about 2 years ago because I was unwilling to have kids with and marry her, though I loved her very much. Her innate biological drive to reproduce and societal pressure to wed was more than I could defeat. She desperately wanted some blonde haired little shits running around but I didn't want to be a daddy. Before that relationship there was another of a 2 year span that ended due to the same incompatible ideals. She tried to get me to knock her up without my knowledge (kinda funny story. If someone wants to hear ask me. Didn't want to write a novel). Now I'm at the age where it seems the type of women I would like to keep around are much harder to come by. I find myself wading through the dating pool, seeing women that I know I would never love. The random meaningless sex and hollow affection is unfulfilling. And the more dates I go on the bleaker things look. Anyway, this got me wondering. So, the question is: would you be willing to marry and/or have kids in order to be with somebody that you truly loved, possibly the "one", if you really didn't want those things in life?
