I've been lurking around for awhile and thought that I'd introduce myself. I've rewritten this introduction several times, so if it sounds discombobulated please forgive me.
I'm Ashley. I've been with my DBF for 2 years (known him for almost 3). That's one of the reasons that we are WTTC. We've both been married before and I'm in no rush to do that again, but I would like a little more "us" time before we even think about bringing kids into the mix. Also, we are both in school pursuing second B.S./technical degrees. I will graduate in the spring, but I'm also planning on doing at least an online M.S. program (I want to eventually teach at the college level, but I'm almost 30 so time is not on my side). He will graduate a year later. I have a government job lined up for after graduation that has income-dependent childcare available, so I'm not too worried about that.
The fact that I even find myself in this position is shocking. I was very adamant that I would be childfree until I was in my early to mid twenties. Then my goddaughter was born and everything changed. I guess that everyone was right when they said I would eventually change my mind. My DBF was also ambivalent about children until a few years ago. Now he wants kids "more than anything." Ugh....sometimes I wish that we could just be in that .01% of failures so the decision would be made for us. In all honestly I could get pregnant right now and most likely everything would work out okay. I'd never not take a pill on purpose, because that's just not fair to anyone in the situation. And unfortunately we're both too **** practical to throw caution to the wind and just go for it.
Nice to meet you! I'm Ashley (there are a lot of Asheys around here lol) and have been married to DH for almost 3 years, together for 8. I, too, always claimed to want to be childfree but fast forward to now, I'm a co-host on a mommies message board
I hope you enjoy our little corner of JM, and I can't wait to get to know you better!
