Hi, I work as a physical therapist and am now studying part time to become an osteopath. I live with my partner in a house I have owned since 2006. I have lived in London all my life and am very settled. I have for a long time wanted to be a Dad. When we met in 2013 we talked about becoming parents. We tried naturally but with no success. As a result of many discussions over the time we have been together we came to understand that my feelings about parenthood are much stronger than hers. She loves children and is devoted to her two now-teenage nieces. We had also discussed adoption and even surrogacy. But ultimately she now feels at her age that the time to be a mother has now passed and she is at peace with that. A friend of mine who is a similar age to myself is (as I write this) weeks away from becoming a father as a co-parent and he has been the first person to direct me to this way of fulfilling a long held dream of parenthood. We love each other very much. So the idea of separating so I could meet someone new to have a child is not what I want to do. Co-parenting seems to be an ideal way of becoming a Dad without losing this very special relationship.

I am new to this enquiry though I imagine that there is no right or wrong way to work out how people co-parent. I expect a lot depends on the common values of the co-parents and a sense that as we talk more things just feel right to make that decision to embark on this life-long and life-changing path.
