I’ve seen a few comments that this storyline may also have been happening so that robron can bring the kids topic and decide if they want a baby.
I don’t want that. I still think they aren’t ready for this step:
1. I think Aaron needs his time and needs the therapy that emmerdale promised adressing his mental health, he needs time to be able to learn to trust people and don’t expect the worse for them. Also he needs to learn and understand 100% robert’s sexuality, because if he doesn’t understand, all this insecurity issues will always come to the light again and not only that, he’ll always feel like he won’t ever be enough because he is not woman - he needs to understand or their relationship was always have troubles. Not to mention, he needs time on his own (with robert maybe), because since the gordon’s trial, he didn’t even got time to breath, to take a long holiday and enjoy himself. Emmerdale decided to throw Liv into the picture and made him her legal guardian and since she’s a teen, she’s always doing something to make aaron worry - I think he didn’t need that fuss that soon.
2. Robert is no way near ready to be a dad, that’s why spoilers are mentioning he’s not steping in into rebecca’s pregnany, it’s not only because of aaron but also because he’s not ready to be a dad. Robert needs therapy as well to overcome all his issues with his dad and needs to love himself enough. He needs to be able to talk about what happen to Jack with his sister and step mom and needs to move on from it. He needs time to fully acept his sexuality. He needs time to forgive himself as well (because well i think he never fully forgive himself destroying andy’s life when he acidentally killed katie and right now he hates himself because of hurting the men of his life).
They both have lack of comunication and they both have insecurities and they both needs to overcome it and will become a strong couple if they do that. I’m hoping in the reveal we have an honest conversation with them discussing their feelings - and how each other’s opinion affect them in their judgment. I believe we’re reaching a point that if they don’t start talking, nothing will hold the relationship so I believe a kid at this moment, or even this year, won’t be a good idea.
