Q: I want to have kids now before I get too old, but my wife has no interest whatsoever. How do we strike a compromise?

Lezlie says...
You don’t. Trying to win over a spouse to parenthood is a doomed prospect. (And what are you going to do, anyway? Poke her every time you see a cute kid and nod approvingly? Yeah, that’ll work.) Clearly express your desire, and make sure you plainly understand her stance. Most importantly, agree to revisit the issue after, say, a year. Then cool your heels, bucko.

Lezlie Lowe has two jobs: 1) freelance writer/broadcaster/researcher, and 2) mother of two young girls. Guess which is more difficult. Send her your parenting questions here.
