    I’d be fine with it. Its not like he’d be having sex with tons of women and therefore having tons of babies all over the place. They really wouldnt even be “his.”

    @ScottishMrs:  I wouldn’t care, we’re not planning on having kids.  However, I doubt my husband would ever agree to it because he doesn’t want to get slapped with some paternity suit, no matter how unlikely it may be.

    Nope.  He didn’t have kids before we met, so the only children he will be biologically fathering will be with me.

    I would NOT be ok with this. Prior to meeting me, of course I can’t control that, but there’s no way I’d support DH doing something like that. We have a child, and knowing she has half-siblings out there would upset me.

    Nope. I asked FI about this before.   He said he didn’t want any more of his little offsprings running around out in the world. 1 was enough… he said he’d come up with a better way to make cash than jack off into a cup.

    @ScottishMrs:  We were just talking about this! Neither of us want kids but are pretty sure we are able to have kids so I don’t think either of us would mind donating sperm/eggs EXCEPT we were joking around that the child might try to come find us one day lol

    I think it’d be weird 20 years later when you see a guy walking around that looks just like your SO did at that age and you CAN’T HELP but wonder lol

    @ScottishMrs:  we’ve thought about it, but he has red hair, so he couldn’t do it anyway.

    No way, he would never do this.

    Hmm I’m not sure. If we decided we for sure didn’t want kids I would be okay with it. If we do have kids I’m not sure I would want him too.

    He doesn’t have sperm anymore, but if he did, I wouldn’t care. I’m of the mindset that it would be helping a couple have a baby to grow and nourish as their own, and what a great gift it would be to help make that happen. I would make a stipulation that it could only go to a couple and could not be used for research purposes.

    SO would definitely not be interested.  Me…I probably wouldn’t be comfortable with the idea either.  But I have to say, if I were a guy and I really needed money, I’d look into it!

    Definitely wouldn’t be comfortable with this.

    If we needed extra money, we/he/I would get a part time side job!

    @mrspinesol:  you can’t donate sperm if you have red hair?! Why?
