Billy and I were both working in the Newport Beach area one afternoon and decided to take advantage of this close proximity and meet up for sushi in Crystal Cove after work. We had been dating now for six weeks or so and we have spent some time getting to know each other better talking about typical things like life, friends, jobs, loves etc .... We had even briefly discussed our feelings on marriage and kids, since he has never been married and I was wondering where he stood on that subject. He had told me that he had thought about it years before with his ex-girlfriend, but his life moved in another direction and he now thought that maybe having children was just not going to happen for him. At that conversation, it didn't seem like having a child was a high priority in his life. So when he mentioned it again over dinner, I was surprised. We had just had this conversation and I wasn't expecting it again so soon. I have already had and raised two children and hadn't thought of having another.
Of course with that being said, if I was in love with someone and he wanted a child, I would discuss any and all options available to make him happy. But, this was way too early to have any really deep discussions about kids and marriage. I do want to see if he is open to being married, because if not, then I'm wasting my time and his.
