Nope. Adopt preexisting children. The world is already horribly overpopulated. Spending thousands of dollars on infertility treatments is a way to line doctors' pockets. Spending that money on a child who needs love is an investment that will pay dividends for years to come.
I am so glad you said this jespah.
Things like IVF and surrogacy are like these sacred cows that one dare not question.
Even more horrible to consider mentioning is that it just might not be in the cards to have a child.
Over 40 years ago, my SIL desparately wanted children, had several miscarriages. However, her husband (this is for his own personal reasons, NOMB) objected to adoption, wanting any child to have his genes.
You know what? They ended up having a very happy life together.
It's our consumer oriented society that says, if you want it, you can, and Should, have it.
Well, maybe not.
There's plenty of preexisting models out there to choose from.
On top of that, the costs....oy....you'd be paying off having a baby when he's having his second child.
