I fear my hometown's 'when?' questions about children

By Hoang Nhi   September 8, 2023 | 04:00 pm PT
I come back to my hometown every year for my grandfather's death anniversary.

But this year, I don't want to.

My husband and I have been married for several years and have no children. We have checked out our reproductive health and the results were normal. Maybe it's because our "charisma" has not come yet.

Our life is very comfortable, except when I come back to my hometown.

I feel annoyed when my relatives keep asking why I have not had children yet.

I've answered one or two people, but when I have to deal with the same question from everyone, I feel tired, it really bothers me.

They also always carry babies toward me to bring me luck, so now I'm scared anytime I see a child.

Even though I want to have a baby with the man I love, I want it to come naturally, as any intervention would be costly and beyond our financial capabilities. My husband also does not want to put pressure on us. He often says that when it's time, it'll come.

I don't want to see my relatives with an unpleasant attitude. How should I behave?
