I say stick to your guns it's hard to work out if town all week then come home and get stuff you need to get done before you leave again . 2 days is never enough to make up for not being there for 5 she is being selfish and not taking your feeling into concederation . I mean women have the right to have a child or not and there is nothing we as men can do so we have a right to not make a donation if we don't want anymore hang in there it will get better

get yourself "fixed"... end of discussion.  My reasoning behind getting fixed is "how many children can I afford to support if the wife kicks my ass to the curb"  My answer was 2,  30 years ago.

Been married well over 30 yrs, it is a work in progress.  Give and take from each of us.  Like I said, keep her happy, you will get it back 10-fold.  As far as inlaws, mine when living where in Florida, we live in North Dakota and my wife agrees with me, that was too close... LOL.

Been together 30 years , married 29 this coming June.  I agree it is give and take, sometimes you give more than you get, sometimes you get more than you give. Work through the rough spots and you will be closer than before.

All I know is if the bedroom door got locked on me the 1st night, I'd be sleeping in the garage on my own accord for at least the next few.

Toomanytoys, I am no expert on marriage but I have been married for 20 yrs with 2 daughters(17 and 14).Im not fool enough to say its my way or no way, or that Im too stubborn to be rational. It takes two to make decisions in a successful marriage, reason it out with each other and everything will work out. No one wants to feel that he/she is not being listened to! My wife and I have had some rough patches like anyone else, including me being stabbed several times by a broken wine glass (long story) before we were married. Work it out! Whats more expensive, a broken marriage, or one more child, is another question you have to ask yourself. Im willing to bet you wouldnt go with the broken marriage.

I once worked with a man who with his wife had 16 kids in 16 years. One year they didn't have one then the next year they had twins.

I would not take being locked out of my own bedroom that well. I would be liable to use the chainsaw to remove it. I don't play childish games very well.

 

Steph wants another child. I keep telling her that I hope she and the kids father are very happy together. I have 4 kids. I don't want or need any more. I will be getting the unkind cut before too long. She doesn't like it but which is better, for her to not have a child she wants, or me to have a child I don't want.

Big difference between what you want and what you think you want, and what you need and what you think you need. Time and common sense tend to level the playing field. Success may be getting what you want, but happiness is liking what you have.  O.K., enough of the O.W.O.  ( OLDE WOMAN'S OPINIONS)

Far too many men are not comfortable with getting "clipped"   When I got clipped many years ago the doctor told me there would be a surgeon teaching him a new less invasive technique which they would perform on me.  When I got to hospital my doctor asked if I would mind if there were others present to observe..I told him no problem....WELL,,they wheeled me into a operating theatre for the procedure and I kid you not there were 30 people in there to see this....you name it,,doctors, nurses,,kitchen and housekeeping staff.   I just laughed at the crowd they had assembled,,this was quite a popular event it seemed.

 

Most "clippings" are now done right in the doctors office with the new technique.

I would in a second. When she was pregnant with the boy that was the deal. After he is born I can go get snipped.

Back when my second was on the way, Oprah or someone like her had a show about women who got court orders to keep their hubbies from doing the snip.  It seems that a "lenient" Judge found a husband would be in breach of contract (without a prenup specifying numbers) because while they were dating she mentioned wanting a large family.

 

She wanted me to watch the episode.  I told her I didn't want to have to buy a new TV.

 

 

There is not one thing in the world that would make me give up my third child.  "Short Stack" and I have a lot of fun together.

 

I am, however, older and wiser now.  I am making an appointment this year.  Assuming she doesnt go thru the change first.
