2013 or 2014

My boyfriend and I have been planning our engagement. We are both in our 30's. He has no children and I have one child (almost grown wHOOOO hooo). we have set a date for the wedding for June of 2013 because we want to have the wedding we desire. However He is bent on 2014 as our wedding year. Awe want more kids and I explained to him that time is of a essence at our age. Stumped what shsould we do? I said 2013 is long enough and 2014 is way to long. I don't want to be 40 having kids. Help!!

Time is of the essence when you're wanting a baby, but no one says that you have to wait until after the wedding to conceive. Personally, I've had a long engagement and it has been nice. 2014 is closer than you think. The wedding is just one day, you're throwing a party and inviting your friends to share in the joy of your love and commitment to one another. I'm sure that you can still have the wedding that you desire if you wait. More time just means less stress. I hope things resolve in a way that makes both of you happy. :)

Compromise. I'm not really sure how to put having kids and a marriage together so taht both of you can compromise on that, butu that's the key to getting what both of you want. Maybe ask him if he were willing to have a maturnity wedding, or maybe he can pick baby names if your wedding is in 2013? Find ways that both of you can compromise, and you'll be fine.
