If the pact was made with the assumption of fertility... I disagreeSilentOne said:To abandon someone who I consciously made a pact with over something they have no control of is silly. I'm with her for a reason. As long as she is ok with me having kids with someone else, I'd stay put.
JiggyLordJr said:Divorce is out of the question. Unless you're stone cold, it's hard to do that to an infertile women. Borderline evil.
Get another woman pregnant. Assuming you want kids (you should), this is the only other option. Find one with the best genes (beautiful, high IQ), and you're good to go.
The positive of this somrhwta dismal situation is you can raw dog your wife with no worries. Gotta look at the bright side.
Don't get married. 15% of children aren't the child of the mother's husband anyway. And if you do IVF half the time another man's sperm, whether it is the doctor or a lab tech or even a janitor, is substituted for yours. This is a no win game.redbeard said:What would you do if this happened to you? It seems to me there are only a few options.

I've since reversed my stance. None of those options are viable in the Catholic faith and I do not recommend them.redbeard said:What would you do if this happened to you? It seems to me there are only a few options.

As far as prevention goes, the best thing you can do is marry young. This is a time-tested method for guaranteeing offspring.2379 The Gospel shows that physical sterility is not an absolute evil. Spouses who still suffer from infertility after exhausting legitimate medical procedures should unite themselves with the Lord's Cross, the source of all spiritual fecundity. They can give expression to their generosity by adopting abandoned children or performing demanding services for others.
Having yourself tested and the woman you are seeing is not a bad idea in this day and age. Unfortunately, infertility is a huge issue that does not get enough public attention because it would of course make women look bad. The girl in my last relationship ended up being infertile.PandaSmile said:Easiest way to figure this all out is get tested. I got tested when I was single and I have high sperm quality and count. I am approximately 30% more fertile than the average father (not man). I then ask the girls to see a doctor. The last three girls I dated had fertility problems so it was good I brought it up. One hadn't said anything right away but had to get an emergency hysterectomy from car accident a few years earlier. The second had a hormone disorder which causes fertility problems. The third had a blood disorder which causes very high risk pregnancies and the doctor said "You can have one kid when the stars align on your blood tests but please don't try to have more" and I am of mind to have 4 or more kids. SMH. None of them had any sort of outward appearance of issues at all.
Girls being infertile appears to be a very big problem.
I would never adopt a rando. If I already had a bunch of kids and like a family member died I would gladly take that child but no adopting some little african baby for me. Nope.
