Thank you for your words, and he and I have been down this yellow brick road many times before talking about contraception, period. I know that some issues will crop up, no matter with whom you decide to reproduce/marry. I guess I'm saying that to be forewarned is to be forearmed. That is what genetic counseling is all about, isn't it? Here's the information, now you make the decision. The good part is that she is in college...the bad part is that she is not unfamiliar with having babies. I can see him getting himself into a crappy situation, and then pi**ing and moaning about it later. You know how it is when they KNOW EVERYTHING.
I've decided that the 20s are when people are not actually grown, but are in the process of learning what being grown is all about. I think people probably start becoming "grown" in their 30s, realistically. And boys....well, it's anybody's guess. So many of them always tend to be a bit behind the curve....my son being no different, I've noticed. It's like in their 20s, they like to talk about being grown, but they are not actually there yet...but the laws tell them that they are, and that's good enough for them.
