Are you suggesting that many women would consider trapping a man, perhaps by poking holes in condoms or using a turkey baster? Surely not. That was probably a one off.

What that WAS was a TV show. Almost all that daytime TV show stuff is manufactured drama and outrage. It has to be, it's for TV. It's been like that almost forever.

Yes it was probably fake and not real. It probably didn't happen.

Yes. Including the cue card (or I guess prompter?) for the crowd to cheer at controversial moments and all that. Standard operation procedure.

You're supposed to get mad and be shocked, call friends - "Did you see that? And people were AGREEING with her!" etc. Then they tune in....TV psychology. It has been simple from the beginning and since it ain't broke, nobody's fixing it.

For both old and new threads it would be somewhat helpful if the "Post Reply" button was removed from atop the first post and only available at the end.
(And even then it wouldn't appear unless you'd clicked on every post? )

I know, I know... that was tongue in cheek, you don't need to tell me how bad a suggestion it is.

I think a whole mess of women would support that tactic to try and force kids on a man.

Sneaky dishonest behavior does not belong in any relationship. The husband needs to do some soul searching rather then try and force someone into his agenda. Just because she gets pregnant doesn't mean she won't have an abortion. Why have a child with someone that you are not in sync with? Unfortunately, people change and change their mind about having children. Neither side has the right to dictate whether to remain childless or to become parents, but, both sides has the right to stay or go in the marriage.
