'My husband does not want a child'

Our sex life is a disaster. I want to have a child, but he seems to be in no hurry. I feel I am running out of time. He is a workaholic and constantly travelling. He thinks I’m being over-sexed. Is there something wrong with me or with him?

Dear Ambalika,
This is one issue that you alone can solve. Instead of sticking to your viewpoints, tread the middle path. This is something that requires both of your involvement. Have you ever wondered why he does not want children? Is it because of financial or housing reasons? You need to speak with your husband about how you feel and why he feels otherwise. As for the time is running out bit, nowadays advances in the medical field enable women even in their 40s to have babies — you are 33 so there is time.
