I think that having children is a decision that only you and your husband can make. Your in laws may find it easier to take out their frustrations on you rather than their son. As long the two of you are comfortable with the decision to not have children then maybe you should just inform them that it is not open to discussion any longer and you would prefer it if they would no longer question you about your decision. Also maybe acknowledging to them their frustrations and disappointment would be helpful.
I hope that everything works out for you and your family!
Well said Regina!
Rachel...it is entirely yours and DH's decision. BUT you may miss out on the most wonderful gift from God. My life has been so blessed by my son Matthew! My personal opinion is you never truly know what life is about until you have a child of your own. However, your family needs to be supportive of your decision!
