He Just Wants To Strengthen Marriage

The "father" --if that's the right word-- of the pill has a dream. Freeze your eggs when you're 20, live your workaholic dream, grow your child in a test-tube after you retire. "When you're ready" is the way he styles it. When you're old enough for 6-12 months of sleeplessness to give you a stroke, says I! (The difference in energy level I experienced with my first child and my fourth is quite something, may I say, and I'm not remotely close to retirement age).

The unasked question is what purpose marriage -- a lifelong commitment-- would serve if we can all have sex without children and children without sex. (And how did I know he would be on his 3rd wife and look just. like. that.)
