In a relationship, it's important for both partners to be on the same page about major life decisions like having children. But what do you do when you and your partner have different views on the matter? This is the dilemma facing a 26-year-old woman who has been with her boyfriend for over two years. She feels strongly that she doesn't want to have children, while her boyfriend wants to be a father someday. To complicate matters, the woman has never told her boyfriend's parents that she doesn't want kids, and they expect to have grandchildren. During a dinner conversation, she decided to inform her boyfriend's father of her stance, and now her boyfriend is angry with her. Was it wrong for her to tell his parents? Was she the a**hole in this situation? Read on to find out.
