    Yeah. That's my issue with it. Deliberately bringing a child into the world knowing it'll only have one parent.

    Am I alone in thinking this is incredibly selfish...of both of them?
    In this situation, no I don't feel that way.

    Exactly. Shit happens, but this was planned. They planned for these kids to never know their father. I think it's selfish. It's not like it was the woman's last shot at kids either, she's very young. The man? I understand he wanted to have kids but it's not like he ever got to meet them. I stand by my assessment that it's selfish!
