When I was in college, our Biology professor asked us this question. We were young then and marriage was far from our minds. But after a thorough discussion, my professor finally gsve this unsolicited advice, addressing to all the single ladies: "Ladies, before you get married, count first". . .LOL! So likewise, I would like to ask every single lady out there. . would you marry him in spite of the handicap?

yes if i love the person, and no if i don't love him..hehehe.... seriously, i will...i guess for most women it doesn't matter if their hubby is incapable of giving them a baby of their own..its only the guys who makes this issue a big thing..if they learned that their girlfriends or even their wives has the incapability of bearing a child, most of them will find another woman who can give them a baby... they are more egoistic than women

So it means that women are more understanding then? He, he, he. . .it's just like saying that when a baby is absent, love jumps out of the window . .

well, as the saying goes "LOVE CAN MOVE MOUNTAINS",so if i am asked this question of marrying my boyfriend in spite his having a low sperm count, i would say i may or may not depending on how we see it in the future. if both of us finds it okay with no kids, then no problem at all. but, if the other is child-loving then i guess the woman has to think twice. kids are one key factor for a successful marriage life...........although they can find other options that of adopting a child isn't it?

Really, it is a dilemma because you wouldn't know in the first place. . .although I believe you...love can move mountains. There are couples who stay married even after several years of being childless. . .it's really a supreme sacrifice.. .

I am not that much knowledgeable with sperm counts but does it mean that a man with low sperm count that it is IMPOSSIBLE for him to get a woman pregnant or it is just that the possibility is low but still is capable of impregnating a girl? Well, it is my belief that marriage is not fulfilled without a child. I think I wont be happy if I wont be able to give birth to a baby that came from my own and my husband's flesh and blood. I might consider this fact of him having a low sperm count and break up with him if I still can.

Well said, and it is really your choice, preventing a future problem coz you really want to have a child--your own flesh and blood. . .But the problem: how would you know?

I will. This is a medical problem what can be solved. It`s the same if you ask me will i marry a sterile man. I am not with somebody because of his sperm, i am with him because we share common things. And there are allways other variants to have a baby.
