Original Message One of the strangest things I've read in a while....

The wife of a man who donated his sperm without her knowledge is campaigning for married men to require their spouse's consent for the process.
The woman, who is in her 30s and lives in Surrey with her husband and son, says the possibility any children - of whom there could be as many as 20 - may want to trace their biological father in 18 years' time, would 'almost feel like introducing the offspring of an adulterous relationship'.
She argues that in married relationships, sperm donation should be a decision both parties are involved in; she says in marriage, sperm should be considered some kind of 'marital asset'.

In a letter sent to the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA), seen by The Sunday Times, the woman calls for the guidelines to be changed, particularly in light of laws which allow sperm donation children to trace their fathers.
In 2005 a change to the law made it the child's right to contact the father when they reached the age of 18. If this were to happen, she says this would 'disrupt' family life and 'unsettle' their own child.
