Nope, no way, not on gods green earth, not in this life time, no friggin way!
If it is his x there is a reason why she is his x. I would want her attached to our family like that.
I'm actually comfortable with DH donating his sperm anonymously or to a friend. I wouldn't be ok with him creating another biological child with his ex. I realise that is a double standard but to me it would be as though they're (he and the ex) continuing their family, not just helping out a friend/stranger with the gift of life.
I would never be ok with him not supporting any children he parented. That is not the kind of man I would marry or love ever!
Does that make sense?
I feel like I must be mad. Lol.
I'd be okay with it I think, not the CS factor, but being a sperm donor for his other kid's mum. Sure. From her POV I can understand wanting to have my kids share as close as possible genetic make up.
I'm good at sharing though.
I can understand that if she wants another child that she would want to have the same parents, but I wouldn't allow it. I won't even go into the child support thing, but it would mean A. this baby would not have the a relationship with the same father that spends time with his/her siblings, could you imagine growing up like that? OR B. the current children would lose their current relationship with their father and the children will only share dna and the fact that their bio father has nothing to do with them OR C. the bio father will be knowingly bringing another child into and taking on the parenting of yet another child in a failed relationship, which isn't ideal.
I'm not sure, It would depend on how I felt about the ex and how well everyone got on. The child support issue makes the water murky though.
I would use a donor if I wanted another child (I'm single).
