However, when there is a lack of respect and trust, anything can become a deal-breaker, as was the case with an anonymous couple from Reddit.

A confused husband

A man shared a problem in his marriage with Reddit users.

He wrote that after three years of marriage, they started to discuss the possibility of planning their first pregnancy. It was then that she made an unusual suggestion: she wanted to conceive with the help of artificial insemination so that her children had the genetic material of a more handsome and intelligent man.

Naturally disheartened, the man tried to understand his wife's reasoning: she said that an attractive and intelligent person had the best shot at life and that was all she wanted for her children. But how come her husband wasn’t any good for that?

Accepting his wife arguments, the man went further and suggested looking for an egg donor as well to ensure that the baby had the best possible combination of genes. His wife replied that their child should have the genes of at least one of the parents.

The poor husband started developing insomnia thinking about all this. And one night at 4 am, he woke his wife up to finally settle the issue. That night, they had a very honest conversation that ended up in tears.

In the midst of an emotional conversation, the wife confessed that she had in fact already chosen the sperm donor – it was a man she’d been having an affair with for a long time. It was a handsome married doctor, their mutual friend, and a frequent guest at their house.
