Marriage won’t work without kids

I’m a lady of 30. My partner of three years is unable to have children. He has proposed marriage, and although I love him, I’m scared that our marriage won’t work without kids, and we’ll end up resenting each other. I’ve accepted his proposal, but my heart is against it. Should I cancel the wedding?

Why stress over this if you love each other? Marriage is not about a child; it’s a sacrament blessed by God. There are many ways of having a child, including adoption, if you really want to spend the rest of your life with this man. Seek help before you walk out of this relationship.
