My husband does not want kids

The first thing is to get to the bottom of why: is it financial, tiredness, health, age, something else? Once you understand the cause you can discuss rationally and find a solution.

Maybe he feels stress after having a baby. Maybe he worrying he couldn't raise his child well or worrying baby's health etc.. It is a commitment. Maybe bring it up when necessary but not purposely open a conversation of it..

Is it due to financial reasons? If it is, then I suggest the 2 of you sit down and talk about the numbers and come to a compromise about having children

Perhaps understand what’s his reason? My Husband was resistance due to financial but eventually finance works out and my boy is coming 1 years old.

Try getting some info, like hw life would be with a baby in family. Also got baby bonus etc
