My boyfriend has suffered with depression for a long time but lately has had this under control. He's currently not on any medication and we have not seen any issues for a while. We've recently bought a house and the topic of children has come up. I'd love children but my boyfriend is hesitant. He'd be a fantastic dad and loves children however he's unsure whether he wants his own as he doesn't want to pass on his mental health struggles and have to see his child go through the suffering he has.
It isn't necessarily a deal breaker for us however I'd like to get some opinions or experiences about whether people feel it is a good decision to not have children for this reason? I feel he is selling himself short
