I’m turning 40, a husband or a baby, do I have to choose?

Turning 40 for a single woman wanting both a husband and a family can be a very difficult place to be. Today there are several choices that are available to you, especially if you have dreamed of being a mother and having a child of your own to love.

Perhaps you feel that you can’t wait for Mr. Wonderful to show up. What if he doesn’t?

And yet, while you are exploring your options you are dating and trying to meet a life partner. I know your dilemma. I too was 40 and single myself.

However, I had decided I wanted to be married if I had kids. I never considered being a single mom by choice. And yet many of my clients do and I have friends who decided to have children on their own either by donor or by adoption.

Perhaps you feel like time is running out and you can no longer wait , especially if you want to get pregnant, having a child of your own and becoming a single mom by choice.

If you are dating, what should you say to a potential date about your future plans? When is the right time to bring up this subject? And how do you think a man would react to your plans to have a baby on your own?

In this article, we will be exploring this topic.
