    I know I do! If this science could happen quicker (or simply happened) would you want to have a baby? Assuming you have a partner and a stable relationship, of course. I dont know if is rare (especially at my age) but i want to have a husband and kids and all of the chaos, love, and headaches that come with it. If any of you saw my last forum topic, you may realize that I am perhaps a hopeless romantic (or a family man?).

    Babies are highly over-rated and they don't taste all that good either

    Probably not... simple because I usually like finding myself coupled with much older men, and I'm not sure if adopting would be a good idea at such an age gap.

    If and when I find myself a committed partner, then I'll consider adopting a kid and raising him to be off than I was. I'll have to play good cop, so the strictly logical parent can keep the rule book in order. Not going to be my kids worst nightmare, or bestfriend. Neither extreme is healthy imo. I want them to realize their full potential in life at a young age. Every relationship is difficult, that one will just have be more so; cause it'd be hell of worth it!

    IVF is too expensive, best to do it the old fashioned way. just a man, a woman, and a turkey baster.

    Yes, Yes, Yes. I,d do it in a second if I could. I,ve always wanted to be a father. Call me crazy or maybe Im just romantic but having a son or daughter or both would be awesome. I just don't want to do it alone. I wish more guys wanted families.

    Been there and done that.

    I love babies; the problem is they grow into kids, pre teens, teens, young adults. Your whole life revolves around them for a good 18 to 22 years. Its not like getting a puppy like it seems some young gays think it is. Its takes a good chunk out of your life and is a HUGE commitment in time and resources.

    I prefer being free (my kid is now 23). I dread the day she has kids of her own and "grandpa" is expected to be there for birthdays, holidays, recitals, ball games, etc. Ugh, so not for me.

    Short answer: No.

    Longer answer: I did when I was in my 20s. By the late '90s, when my friends started adopting (because they were finally able to), I was in my late '30s and concluded that I had a good life, with meaning based on other things, and on balance didn't really want to any more.

    While I still have an occasional age cohort that becomes a parent, 51 is pretty late, so I'm past it. Also, I'm an adopted kid myself who found his birth mother and explored a lot of adoption issues in the last few years. I've decided that adoption as it's practiced in the U.S. (and that is IMO how most gay men - other than those who have kids before they come out - become parents) is more of a mixed ethical bag.
