with Angella Dykstra
I'm a mom of three, a professional accountant, and an amateur photographer and writer. I am not a marriage expert. But my husband and I take "Til death do us part" seriously, and here I'll be sharing how we keep our marriage strong while we both do that insane work-life juggle.
Check out my Work It, Mom! profile and my blog, Dutch Blitz.
I found this post entertaining because, 1. My husband has had a vasectomy, 2. He is a huge fan of March Madness, and 3. He happened to have his procedure done in March (2007).
Wait a second…
The topic of having a vasectomy is one that causes a lot of discussion in our large circle of friends. It seems as though “back in the day” doctors would just tie the tubes of the mother after childbirth if the family knew they were done procreating. Nowadays, there are still a few men that feel that they will somehow be less “manly” if they have a vasectomy.
To us, it seemed to be a little ridiculous for me to undergo such an invasive surgery as getting my tubes tied. When my husband went to consult his doctor (also a family friend) about getting a referral for a vasectomy, the doctor gave him kudos. He pointed out that WOMEN CAN DIE during childbirth; it is only fair that the husband sucks it up and does his part by having a vasectomy.
It really ISN’T THAT BAD. The day that my husband had his “procedure” done he spent the rest of the day on the couch (Watching basketball. Hmm…) The next day, he was back to his normal self and puttering out in the yard.
Assuming there are no religious reasons for forbidding you from a permanent procedure, I would love to hear your thoughts on this.
Would (did) your husband have a vasectomy?
