What would you say if your friend asked you a really huge favor? Depending upon what the favor is, if it was a close friend, you’d probably do anything to help that friend out.

But what if she wants your husband to be a sperm donor? That might be a tougher sell. One journalist was asked this question and offered his advice.

First off, that’s a HUGE ask, and you probably feel as though your friend has crossed the line.

When speaking to her a little empathy goes a long way. She probably needs some kind of support to have even asked that question in the first place.

Everyone knows that having a kid a really huge consideration, this is not a request for a ride to the airport.

This is someone that your husband will be responsible for the rest of his life, and you will too, indirectly. Listen to your gut.

Sperm donation does happen among people who know each other, but there’s a lot of thought, tact, and nuance that goes into the asking, none of which we see here.

There’s a lot to consider when doing this—family history, medical compatibility, the donor’s anonymity.

In this case, with “cute” or “well-behaved” requisites for a child, it’s obvious she hasn’t thought about it as much as she should.

Also, she mentions that you and she could raise your kids “like siblings.” What does that even mean?!? Does she want a donor or something else entirely?

People on Buzzfeed weighed in…
