Q: I am 33 years old and have been married for 11 years, no children. My husband refuses to start a family with me saying, I can’t force him to have a baby. Im afraid I’m getting too old. The longer we wait and the older I get, the more I resent him. He is distant and selfish, and lacks compassion and understanding. We have intercourse once every few months and he insists on using protection.
A: You husband is not behaving correctly. Preferably refer him to an experienced and righteous aalim living near you.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
