she's nice you see
time to shit or get off the pot
Just called me to say she and her partner are going to use the sperm (we were pretty much married and due to lifestyle my sperm count is low, enjoy breakfast) we got frozen when we we were going out to have a kid not really sure how I feel about that, but can't really do much as she paid for the freezing process.
Can hardly say no to her. We don't live in the same place so if it is successful for them I will never meet it.
Eh, what? Of course you can!
We were going to use it anyway when we were together at some point,but I don't want kids now so guessing if they do they might as well. As I say I am not going to ever be involved.
as in by law it's obliged to be able to find out its genetic parent.
You definitely have a say in the situation - there's been a case I remember in the past involving IVF where the woman had ovarian cancer, so they created embryos with her then husbands sperm so that they could have kids if they wanted to in the future. They ended up breaking up, then in a subsequent marriage the woman wanted to implant the embryos she'd had made with her ex-husbands sperm to have kids with the new man - the ex-husband exerted his right not to have kids meaning the embryos couldn't be used.
Just spoke to my lawyer mate over there I lived with for a bit and he says that I probably wouldn't be able to do much and I literally have no cash to take this to court, as for the contacting me when they are 18 I don't hold up much chance of me lasting that much longer so not an issue.
and then through the European courts too
Brief outline of the case here
thats about as much advice as I can give - I only remembered the case from an ethics course at university. wish you well anyway
She just called to let me know, kind of wish she hadn't but fair enough of her to let me know I suppose
Although probably the last I will here for her now so all is good
I couldn't imagine being in that sort of situation, makes it easier somehow that they're lesbians I guess, cause it'd be weird having some guy bring up 'your' child. odd situation anyway!
I am getting a bit worried now about this after people's comments and might be good to get your legal opinion (although not sure you will know much about Dutch Law)
Because the last thing we want is another Lando, God rest his soul :(
I am just worried now if by some miracle I am alive in 18 years it tries to make contact.
Surely if it is registered in Netherlands they can't pass on details if I live in UK?
selfish wankstain fucking hell
congrats! may your life be filled with happiness and hoverboards
but always mystified as to why on earth anyone would want to get married these days
plus I took friday off work so 3 day weekend. No losers in this game
Welcome to the world of marriage and all the highs and lows it brings.
How did you propose? Or did she ask you?
I have massive engagement/wedding envy.
