He Wanted to Wait and Now We're Infertile
a blog by Marc Sedaka, February 11, 2014
My husband insisted we wait five years before having children and now we’re having fertility issues. Is it wrong for me to feel like he’s to blame?
When it comes to infertility, there are more than enough things you can blame. Time. Finances. Doctors. God. So do you honestly need to add your husband to that already long list? “If you had only let us try sooner.” “If you had only worn boxers instead of briefs.” “If you had only read those dozens of books a bought you on the subject.” Forget it. Put it out of your mind. Don’t even think about it. In order for you, and your marriage, to survive this in tact, you have to share the triumphs as well as the tragedies, and the praise as well as the blame. After all, you’d expect (and deserve) no less consideration from him.
