Q: My partner often talks to family and friends about our desire to have children, and he goes into strange detail including names he’s picked out. It’s starting to freak me out, but when I confront him about it, his response is “How can you not be excited about this!?”.

Angela says…
Is it freaking you out because you don’t want to have children? Or because he’s setting high expectations before you even try to conceive and you fear you won’t be able to? Either way, you should speak with him. It sounds like he’s putting his excitement about an event that has yet to happen ahead of your feelings.

Derek says…
I can only imagine what he might be telling strangers he meets on public transit. And I can say with pretty near certainty that nobody wants to hear random details about your pregnancy quest. It’s just bad form. If talking to him doesn’t cool the situation, perhaps it’s time to withhold services in the bedroom until he stops being so gabby with the neighbors.
