Our expert says:
I wonder whether he could even give himself a "good enough reason" for his behaviour, and this strong sense of needing to avoid his former partner. One wonders whether he is in fact yet over her, and it is probably reasonable that he hesitates to have another child, with you or anyone, till this is emotionally resolved. You wouldn't want him to marry you soon, unless and until he is fully over the previous relationship. So discuss this seriously with him, without rancour, and see what you can jointly agree. Maybe he would benefit from counselling, but men seem to feel especially squeamish about accepting such help. Maybe it will turn out to be worthwhile for you to move on, as you seem ready to do.
