The honeymoon is over. Romance is dead. Were we crazy to gamble like that in Fiji? We hadn’t even discussed our parental values yet. Or financial planning. What is the cost of child-rearing? Are we really ready and wanting the responsibility of creating, then shaping a human life? What will our parenting styles be? Bal’s family is Catholic. Mine is not. Will our child be baptised?
We talk. We learn.
We are scared shitless.
More telling, we are scared celibate.
