Woman wants to divorce her husband because he's a sperm donor dad to 47 kids

A woman says she wants to divorce her husband after discovering he has 47 kids.

According to the post on Reddit, the couple have been together for eight years and have a three-year-old daughter together.

The woman, who posted under the username fedupwife1234, knew that he had donated sperm as he told her when they first started dating but she never asked him how many kids he’d had.

She says she ‘just assumed it was a couple of kids’.

But last week the conversation came up and he explained that the last time he spoke to the fertility centre, the number of kids that had come from his sperm was 47.

And now she knows the number, she feels it’s changed their relationship.

She said: ‘I was… Not expecting that many.

She later added that she was particularly worried because the rules where they live mean all the kids are entitled to his contact details when they turn 18.

Most people agreed that she shouldn’t divorce him when he’d been quite upfront and some said she was behaving in quite a selfish way.

One said: ‘Having 47 kids by donation really wouldn’t bother me. He didn’t have sex with them women and then ran off after a kid had been born. My issue would definitely be the contact at 18. That’s a lot of kids to want to join the family, I’ll admit it’s not something I would ever be interested in. My family is here and now I wouldn’t want anyone else coming in our circle and me having to play some kind of step mum.’

Another added: ‘You knew in advance, specifically asked not to know how many and have been married for years. What’s the real reason you want a divorce?’

‘You asked him and he told you. If numbers were important to you then you should have asked earlier,’ someone else said.
