I think you need to respect his decision. Maybe you can agree to try to start trying for a baby in one year? Or two years? That way both partners have time to do what they want in life before trying to have children.

Try also discussing why he is against having children at the moment, and give them some validity. If needed, provide him comfort and support.

While I think the respect needs to be there, I don't think it's fair for one partner to hold off the having of children for the other indefinitely and eternally if children were discussed before marriage.

I think it will help if you have him discuss why he doesn't want to have a baby right now. He might be dealing with his own insecurities of being a dad. Being open might help him resolve his issues.

I really think that deciding to have a baby needs to be agreed upon by both parents. There is no right or wrong time to get pregnant. It is completely up to you and your partner what feels right.

There will never be at time, in my opinion, that you will be completely prepared to have a baby but you have to decide when the situation is best for you both.
