I have two kids, and my wife says no more.
There was a time that I wanted four children, but the feeling has passed now. I side with the wife now.
That being the case, we’ve been considering more permanent forms of birth control.
My wife was considering tubal ligation (otherwise known as having her "tubes tied"). But this is major surgery and I’m not sure if this is the best way.
I asked her to find out about me getting a vasectomy.
The nurses at the clinic were shocked. They said that people don’t usually ask for those things.
In speaking with my friends, they too don’t feel comfortable about it. Some were clear that they wouldn’t do that in any way.
I don’t get this about men. I guess it’s because they don’t have to face consequences of pregnancy like women do, hence women more likely to perform the surgery to prevent it.
What’s interesting is that a single man could have sex with a different woman every day for 9 months, potentially conceiving 270 times. While a woman could have sex with a different man every day for 9 months and conceive only once. And yes it could turn out like octa-mom and get 8 children, which is still many times less than 270.
This to me just shows that people place their focus in the wrong place. No wonder women feel victimised for being women.
At least I got the names of a couple of doctors to check out. Want to get that done before the ball drops.
