Dear Roe,

For nearly four years I’ve been with a woman, who’s recently become my fiancée. She’s more than 15 years younger than me. From the moment we started dating I told her I don’t want children. We rarely talk about it anymore, but if the subject comes up she seems to still hope we’ll one day have one.
