You want another child. Would you stay married if your husband announced a surprise vasectomy?

You want a baby but your husband does not. If your SO came home saying, "Honey, I have a big surprise, I just had a vasectomy!" Would you divorce him?

Read a story where the husband said to his wife that he wasn't stopping her from getting pregnant, just himself.

  • Yeah, of course. If he didnt want more children, even if I did, I wouldn't even consider it... So if he had something like that done, it would end the conversation, not the relationship...

  • I wouldn't marry a man who did that sort of disrespectful thing. Something that important should be discussed

  • I would be very upset, but I don't know if I could do that or not. I think I would let him go without for a while though for sure.

  • What a jerk! I'd kick him so hard it'd undo what the Dr. did! Then my atty would get the rest!

  • Oh wow. I think thats such a big decision. I would definitely feel left out.
    I wouldn't divorce him though!! I'd be a bit distraught as to why he wouldn't tell me.

  • OK- that was my knee-jerk response. (above) But seriously, I dont think I could live w/ someone who would have such disregard for me for our relationship & my maternal urges. It would only lead to deep resentment. I'd have to say that it'd be over. Thank God my husb is very open & honest w/ me & I know he would never do such a thing. (Besides, we're done - but we agreed that we're done.)

  • I wouldn't divorce him..but we would need some SERIOUS counseling to work that one out. Especially since we are against any sort of sterilization for either of us. It would be TOTALLY against everything I know about weird to think about

  • rolling on floor

    LOL! Absolutely not, but then again, I don't want any more children either. Actually, I would tell her to pass him on down to me if she decides to divorce him.
