Today Mary and Jared joined us on the air for another Great Mate Debate. Mary is currently 7 ½ months pregnant with their second child. She and her husband have both agreed that child number two would be the last one, so she would like her husband to honor the agreement and get a vasectomy. According to his logic however, he wants push her body through more torture and get her tubes tide. She thinks getting a vasectomy is an easier choice though, and he can get it done before the baby arrives that way they both can be on their game and she won’t have to go through a more lengthy recovery time. Jared says a lot of doctors tell him it is completely common for most women to get their tubes tied after their c-section because they are already in there, so why not kill two birds with one stone. Plus, he will be there to help her recover.
Slacker doesn’t like the way Mary said Jared’s “logic,” because the truth is, she is mocking it, and wants Mary to get that his logic does make sense. She is already going to be going through a c-section so while they are in there they might as well go in and tidy things up. Also, Slacker doesn’t like that Mary or any woman for that matter, just throws it in a man’s face that they are the one carrying the baby. He didn’t create the universe, he didn’t do that to you, and so you can’t blame him.
Steve asked Slacker, being the married man, if most married couples go the surgical route if they decide to not have kids anymore. Slacker’s response was yes, it’s the easiest route most of the time, but there are other methods. However, he does believe if you are going to have this fight, the man is going to lose and he will have to get the vasectomy.
Slacker and Steve both started off saying, “I think I just heard Mary say she wants to see her husband go through pain because she is…” I laughed because truth be told, that is exactly how I would play it. I would try to throw in all the reasons Mary did with having a faster recovery time without getting her tubes tied and how he can get the vasectomy done now and not have to wait, but truth be told I would just want him to suffer a little… See how it is for a woman. I know it’s so cruel of me, which is why like I said before, I laughed. It’s not that I wouldn’t love him though… Think of it as a bonding experience, haha.
