Dear confused,
There's nothing that guarantees that even within a genuinely loving couple, you will both feel the same about everything, or reach the same sages of maturity at the same time. If he's 26, and says he thinks he'll be ready for a child at 27, I wonder what makes him think he needs justone more year to get ready ? Or maybe it's just a way of putting off the decision he doesn't feel ready for. Such decisions belong to both of you, with mutual respect --- maybe some marriage counselling, even a couple of sessions, would help to clear the issues and lead to a mutually satisfying decision ?
