Dh and I are still going back and forth about me getting my tubes tied vs. him getting a vasectomy. It's flat out better for him to get a vasectomy. Plus, he already said he would. I have made appointment after appointment. I research these doctors thoroughly. The last 2 have been close personal friends of my dad (he's a general surgeon). But he kept procrastinating. I know that the idea is scary enough but walking into an office and talking to the doctor has got to make you want to curl up in a ball and cry. In an effort to be sensitive and understanding I stopped making appointments and I let the issue go. UNTIL.....
On the phone with dh about 20 minutes ago and he says to me, "Do you even want anymore kids?"
"Do you hun?" I ask him
"No, I don't. I have my boys. I have my princess. I'm good...but are you?"
"Yes I am. I really think this is it for us." I tell him
"Cool. Sooooo about the vasectomy. I'm just not feeling it. How about when I come home I take my 2 week vacation. We get you to a doc, get you scheduled same week for the surgery and then that way i'm home for 2 weeks to help. Oh and if you do it... i'll buy you that purse you wanted. "
"I'm sorry, I think had something stupid in my ear. Did you just say you'd buy me a purse in exchange for my getting my tubes tied?" I ask him
"Um. That was bad huh?"
What the heck!! BTW ladies. He was dead serious about that purse though. I asked him again and he said yes he was being serious. He wants me to get my tubes tied for a purse that 42.99
Is this man loco or what? LoooooooooL
**If you've had your tubes tied please a little info would help me.
** Dh/So had a vasectomy...please info.
****Okay i'm editing this to say, I was NOT mad. I actually found this quite hilarious. I'm not going to force him to do something he does not want to do. Which is why I stopped setting the appointments. No one should have to to anything they do not want to. But a purse? LoooooooooooooooooL for real?

LOL! I think it's funny, that would be great in on some TV sitcom. I know you don't find it funny though...
You guys should both go to a Dr. for medical counseling on the issue. He has a right not to get it done, and you also have a right to not get your tubes tied. Maybe with the help of some counseling from a Dr., you guys could compromise better.
