My boyfriend has started talking about marriage and kids which makes me scared

DEAR DEIDRE: EVERYTHING seemed to be going well for me and my boyfriend after seven months together.

But now he has started talking about marriage and kids, which makes me want to run for the hills.

I’m 22 and he is 24 and we have been enjoying getting to know each other.

My family have taken to him, even though they haven’t been able to see him much due to coronavirus restrictions.

I have always wanted to have children but I feel now is way too soon to make those kinds of plans.

DEIDRE SAYS: You need to establish whether your boyfriend is talking about the idea of having children one day in the future, or does he want to make firmer plans?

Clarification may take the pressure off if he is simply talking about children as a future idea.

You may also be having such a strong reaction to the idea of wedlock if your parents had an unhappy marriage.
