Hello Niram and Niambi-I love the podcast. I have a bit of a strange question…I’m a 36-year-old mother of 2 dating a 44-year-old divorced father of two. Recently we were kissing, and he said, “oh, Kate, I want to get you pregnant.” We haven’t even told each other that we love the other, but I do believe that we are falling in love. What does his declaration really mean? Please be honest!
