    I literally set a calendar reminder on my phone to remind me, to remind my wife, about her birth control pill. Two children are enough...

    Population crash may not be that bad, less demand on resources for one.

    Advice

    Do not over exert yourself until the doctor says it’s ok no matter how good you feel.

    I felt really good the following day and played a little back only line volleyball. I only served and occasionally took a step right and left to return the ball. Wasn’t too long before I started feeling a little pull and pressure. When I got around to checking out the boys they were about the size of a racket ball. They ended up packed in ice.

    Self imposed dumbassery and idiocy.

    I would bet less random booty calls resulting in pregnancy due to the lockdowns had an effect as well. (not just choosing not to have a child. )

    Lol. We were made to have kids together, apparently.

    Source: we "decided" to have a kid on our 4th date.

    Turned out great. She's a keeper.

    I would add a hindrance to medical care. Hospitals for the most part did not provide care unless it was a necessity coupled with the fact no one wanted to go to the hospital in the first place.

    Same here. Much easier for me to go through it than my wife.

    We already know why you joined the Navy 93.
    No need to discuss how much male tail you got.
