Weekly theme: Marriage
How does your dh/SO feel about abortion? Does that position influence your position? Has that position caused friction in anyway?

Re: Weekly theme: Marriage
DH agrees with me that it should be a woman's choice. Neither of us influenced each other, we just found out when discussing it that we both agreed.

Re: Weekly theme: Marriage
SO doesn't really like the idea of abortion, but he also understands and agrees that it is a woman's choice. He will never be in a position to have to make that decision for himself....
His thoughts on it won't change my thoughts on it...

Re: Weekly theme: Marriage
I am very pro-life. When we first go together we were walking and asking each other questions. I asked what he would want to do if we were to accidentally get pregnant. He replied with he wouldn't be against considering abortion. I politely informed him that I wouldn't view that as an option for me. He said "ok" and that was that. :lol:

Re: Weekly theme: Marriage
His views align with mine. There are certain circumstances when it's the better choice, but for the most part it's a thumbs down. I don't know if he'd ever vote to make it illegal... but I doubt it.

Re: Weekly theme: Marriage
Our views are pretty much the same. We're both pro choice.

Re: Weekly theme: Marriage
He's 100% pro-choice and as am I. We don't conflict in any way about our views thank goodness. If we had things probably would have been a lot different.

Re: Weekly theme: Marriage
he is just as pro-life as I am. he isn't as vocal or active just because he has other passions.

Re: Weekly theme: Marriage
He's more firmly pro-life than I am, but we've had some really good discussions on the subject, which has opened his mind quite a bit.

Re: Weekly theme: Marriage
DH is pro-choice. I don't think its something he gives a whole lot of thought to though!

If I were to become pregnant now I would likely have an abortion for medical reasons and he knows this and agrees.

Re: Weekly theme: Marriage
Dh is pretty much like me on this. It would be a big fat no for us for any reason other than something life threatening, but he think we can't push our beliefs on others. Our only difference is that I think I would carry a pg that was life threatening to me if the baby could be okay & he would adamantly not want me to. I just truly hope this never comes up for us & I wish it never came up for anyone. I have had zero health problems in pg so far - so I hope that is how it stays!

Re: Weekly theme: Marriage
Both of us are pro-choice, and I don't think our relationship would have gone this far if he wasn't pro-choice. There are a few values I don't compromise on in a relationship, and abortion is one of them.

Re: Weekly theme: Marriage
He is pro-choice, as am I. We both also accept that it's up to the female to either get one or not, since the female's body is the one hosting and all. I do not believe we would be so harmonious if we disagreed on this issue.

Re: Weekly theme: Marriage
We're pretty opposite actually. His ex had an abortion awhile before they broke up (he knew about it, she didn't do it on the sly or anything). I am not necessarily pro-life, but I could never have an abortion myself. I know he would not have a problem if I had made that choice, though.

It doesn't really affect our relationship, though.... he never made the suggestion when I got pregnant (even unexpectedly). It's just like some political beliefs and other issues we disagree on. It's interesting to hear both sides, and we respect each other's opinion.

Re: Weekly theme: Marriage
We're both very pro-choice. It works out.

TheMrs June 19th, 2010 07:56 AM

Re: Weekly theme: Marriage
We are fairly similar. Neither of us would have the heart to abort our own, but believe it is a useful option for individuals and society. Though he is prochoice I think he is more prochoice based on circumstances and more judgmental of those who do choose to have an abortion than I am.
