Dear Carolyn: My partner wants a baby and I dont, and because we are same-sex there would be some difficulty involved in having one.
After many frustrating conversations, we have decided we will not have one. I see this as nothing more than sticking to our default state of childlessness, but my partner clearly thinks I have gotten my way and feels owed something in return.
I suggested adopting a new pet and that provoked anger, snide remarks, and tears.
