My roommate and I have been living together for about six years now (co-dependent anyone?) and we have often talked about marriage (not to each other, she is straight and for the record not my type), family, what we want out of life, etc. and in the six years of our friendship here have been our generalized identities in regards to family:
Her desires: rent a place and live in a city, get married, have kids, move out of the city
My desires: be single, no children, own my own home and be completely independent
Very different in lots of ways, however in the last year or so we have pretty much reversed, which is f.r.e.a.k.y. She has zero desire for marrying her long-term boyfriend and wants to raise no children while I want to have it all and it is freaking me out.
Here is what I want...and no laughing (seriously), because I know...I know....
I want a wife to come home to, children to tuck in at night that look like my wife, a dog, a nice house in a good neighborhood where my children can play in the fenced in backyard and get a good education, and a stable job where I can pay my bills and still have money in the savings account...I want it all
I have 3 out of the 5 and for a while that was enough...I mean I bought my 3 bedroom 2 bath house the other year with a future family in mind. But now I can feel the desire growing inside more and more and I want it all....is that too much to ask?
