I guess in your shoes I don't know what I would do. I definitely wouldn't TTC yet, but would I leave the relationship? I don't know. I would probably start to squirrel money away for savings for potential sperm donor in the future though.

Juggles I think you are selling yourself short. Don't be scared in thinking you are too old to start all over again in a relationship. I was 32 when I decided to go on the Internet to find love. The man I met was 37 at the time. 9 months later we were married with 3 beautiful girls later. I felt 100% ready to start a family with him as he is my everything and you deserve the same. There are a lot of fish in the sea. Maybe try the Internet and be patient. I went with RSVP. You could narrow it down to exactly what you are looking for. People are registering everyday on it.

If it is an ongoing pattern in his life (and to be honest, unless he has had some crisis that has brought him, at age 45, living back at home with his parents that in itself is not a good sign) then no, I would not plan for a family with him. Once a baby comes along you won't have time to be a Mum to a grown man as well.
I would cut my losses.

Im not sure the leopard will change his spots, personally I would move on and look for true love, you are still young and deserve the best! Good luck

So yes, people have rough patches but I think if you're questioning whether you're IN love with him or not then you probably know the answer to your question
It seems like you know what you want in life, and that positive attitude will definitely help if you chose to find a new partner!

I haven't read all of the responses, but I personally wouldn't. Having a baby puts a lot of pressure on even the most amazing relationships. If there is already doubts, they are only going to get worse.

I think you need to work on your relationship first and see where that goes.
You and your DP need to sit down and communicate everything to him. Type/write it out if you need to.
Personally I've found the older the guy, the less they will put the effort in to change.
I wish you the best though!
