This is a guy/girl difference. Girls want to know the potential for the future before they get close to deciding on a future. In other words, she wants to know if you are the kind of guy who wants marriage/fatherhood etc, long before she gets to a point where she decides that she wants to marry you and have children with you. Girls don't want to even start a relationship with a guy if they're just going to get attached only to find out that you aren't the kind of guy to have a future with her. They'd rather not even start down that path if they know up front that it isn't what you want.
She likes you, and she's considering dating you. But she's not necessarily wanting kids and marriage with you. She just wants to make sure that you aren't a permanent bachelor who will never give up your bachelor ways, before she even entertains the idea.
