    @dynamic_duo:  It wouldn’t bother me, but he said it would greatly bother him and he has never considered it. He also said knowing he has children out there that he didn’t know would kill him.

    Darling Husband would never even consider it not for a moment.  Then again, he doesn’t have anymore to give, so it is a non issue for us.

    Nope and Nope… then again we wouldn’t even look into fertility treatments &/or IVF if we struggled with or couldn’t have kids on our own. *shrugs shoulders*

    I wouldn’t like it.. and while I do understand your argument that it’s doing some good for people who want children that cannot conceive naturally, you always want to make money off of it. I feel like if anyone is going to give, they should be doing it for free out of the goodness of their heart. But personally I wouldn’t want my husband donating, especially for cash.

    I don’t want to come across as selfish but I would feel really uncomfortable about it.  Fiance and I are not TTC yet, but when we do try and if we do have difficulties (touch wood we don’t) it will be sooo difficult discussing these kinds of options.  Obviously the children will you our own but deep down they won’t be from us…

     

    On the other hand, a child is a child no matter what.  This is a really tricky subject.

    I don’t think I’d mind because I know how hard it is for the people in those situations that need the donated sperm but Darling Husband wouldn’t do it. He thinks it would be too weird and I can’t blame him.

    @dynamic_duo:  It wouldn’t bother me one bit if he did it.

    I wouldn’t care. As far as I know, Darling Husband has no inclination to do so, but I don’t think he’d be vehemently opposed to it, say, if a friend asked him to be a donor.

    Add a poll please! 🙂

    Absolutely not, but neither would he want to.

    Neither of us would care if the other decided to donate. I am considering donating eggs
