I never ever informed him this story, due to the fact that I believed it does not matter because he didn’t desire kids either.

When I lastly informed him that I really CAN’T have kids, my fiancé got really mad at me for „ hiding” that reality from him, and stated he would not have actually dated me if he learnt about it.
