  • Yes. We have 2 kids and I'm pregnant again. I told DH that if he really doesn't want anymore kids, he has to get snipped after the baby comes.

  • If he doesn't want any more, yes it is fair for him to get the procedure done.

  • for about a year i wanted another and he didn't - now he does want another and i'm not so sure. don't do the prodecure until you know for sure. if you are both still young enough i'd wait he could change his mind

  • I'd say that's fair. I got my tubes tied because although neither of us wanted more kids, I was the one more forcefully not wanting more kids, not wanting to be pregnant again, so I just did it.

  • If he is 100% sure he does not want any more kids then YES, he should be in charge of preventing pregnancy (and get snipped). When I was pregnant with my 3rd son hubs and I discussed it and decided #3 was going to be our last baby. Since I was having a c-section we both decided I would get my tubes tied at the same time. If I had not been pregnant I would have had hubs get snipped as it would be much easier for him to get fixed than me.
