Speaking of Jennifer Aniston's movie "The Switch": Is your husband's infertility wrecking your marriage? Do you feel like divorce is inevitable because of this?

Over here at Divorce Saloon, we look for almost any excuse to cheer Jennifer Aniston on. And why? Because she rocks. She is a strong woman who handled her divorce with extreme grace. She never cracked up under the pressure of being replaced by what some people believe (but we don’t) is a “prettier” woman. Sure, Angelina is nice looking. She is interesting. Blah, blah, blah. But over here, we are definitely skewing towards Team Aniston and we think she is a strong, strong woman, and we admire her for this. Because, surely, the author of this post would have probably died from the stress and public humiliation that was Brangelina. But as Jen said in a magazine at the time “I am not defined by that relationship.” And I think she has proven that. She is her own woman. And she has survived.
Ok. Having said that, Jen has this new movie out called The Switch. Because of my situation right now, I doubt I’ll get to the movie theatre to see it. But it does have this interesting premise. It’s all about this over 40 woman who is unmarried and who wants a baby so much that she decides to get artificial insemination. It looks like something happens whereby the woman in question  (Aniston’s character) is impregnated with her best friend’s sperm….
So, got me to thinking about divorce and male infertility. How often does this become an issue in a marriage, I wonder? How often is it the tipping point or the breaking point? How often does this lead to divorce?
And what about the use of artificial insemination that produces non-biological children in a marriage. This must create issues for some couples down the road. The man knows he is not the biological father. At some point the child or children are told. How does this work?
And when a divorce happens, who gets custody? Well, the answer to that is easy. In the law a man is the presumed father of any child born during the marriage. The burden is on the wife to prove he is not the father. But in artificial insemination cases, the law is probably a little bit murky. If the father does not adopt the child, for example, and this is artificial insemination, how is that handled by the courts?
That’s a good question. I don’t know the answer to this one though. If you do, please write us and let us know how this would be handled.
But yea. No question that infertility issues, for both parties, can tax a marriage to its demise.
