Disclosing Infertility Issues Before Marriage

Would You Marry Someone Who Is Infertile?

Things get more intense as couples get closer to slipping rings on each other's fingers. When we posed the question, "Would You Tell Your Significant Other About Infertility?" a whopping 97 percent of lilsugar readers said they'd be honest about fertility issues should things get serious. While many people practice full disclosure prior to matrimony, others might withhold facts for fear of losing their beloved. For better or worse, would you stay with someone if he told you he couldn't bear children of his own?

I disclosed to my husband before we got married that there was a huge possibility we couldn't have kids.

yes. there are so many different things that you can do if you want to have kids and 'can't' have them.

This sounds terrible, but if my spouse couldn't have kids it would come down to how much money he and I both had. IVF and adoption are both very expensive. If we couldn't have kids biologically and couldn't afford these options I would really have to think about it. I would really want kids in my family.

Infertility would not stop me from marrying. There are alternatives if children seems like a must on the list.

Yes I would absolutely marry my husband even if we knew before hand he couldn't have children ! There is IVF, there is adoption, there are so many options for children. Plus, unless you have children together before you're married, you never really know if the two of you will be able to have biological children !
