Since we are sensible people who love each other, of course that wasn't the end of the conversation. I brought it up again with facts and figures backing up my point. For example, we'd save lots of money on various forms of birth control over the next decade.
Plus, a vasectomy is a simple outpatient procedure as opposed to getting my tubes tied, which is major surgery and less effective. And we simply can't keep risking having an accident, when our options would then be to raise a kid we don't want, which wouldn't be fair to any of us; give it up for adoption, which would be emotionally wrenching; or having an abortion, which I would prefer not to do, since the wonderful, woman-hating state of Texas makes getting one as difficult and painful as possible. Getting a vasectomy just makes the most sense out of all our options.
