Having cute kids is nice, but we can all probably agree that it's not the most important thing to focus on... right? Well apparently for one woman, it's cute babies or bust. Her husband shared in a post on Reddit that his wife requested that they use a sperm donor to conceive so that they'll have "incredibly attractive" kids. 

"She says she just wants our kid to have the best shot at life and lead the best life it can," he explained.

  • Reddit user SmoothPalpitation turned to the online community after his wife made the unusual request:

    In a post that has since gone viral, he explained that he and his wife are planning to have kids soon, but in their most recent conversation about the topic, his wife "suggested a sperm donor because then the child will (supposedly) have a better chance at a good life."

    "I was incredibly confused and asked her to explain," he continued. "To which she explained that if the baby had genes of an incredibly attractive and smart man (tried not to be insulted at that) then he/she would live an easier life and be happier."

    The redditor said that he understands there are certain advantages to being better looking, "but it's just so hurtful to think that your wife doesn't think you're good enough to have children with."

  • Redditors were dumbfounded by SmoothPalpitation's wife's request.


    There was no way this was a reasonable thing to want, they argued.

  • "You should feel 100 percent insulted," one person told him, and suggested she get an egg donor. 

    Though SmoothPalpitation said that when he did try to bring up the idea that his wife use an egg donor, too, "she pretty much shut that down real fast."

    "She says that at least one of us need to be biologically related to the child and it's better if the mother is because the baby grows inside the mother and we could be involved in the pregnancy," he explained.

  • And we all know that there's no real way to predict how hot your kids will be.

  • "That relationship sounds over," someone told him. "By no means should your wife ever say that to you."

  • And if you think that's bad, dear reader: Brace yourself. The story gets so much worse. 


    With a little prodding the husband got down to the bottom of his wife's request and it wasn't pretty.

  • SmoothPalpitation updated the post with news that wife already had a donor in mind ... the man she was cheating on him with.


  • Some people suspected his wife was already pregnant by her colleague, but the Reddit user shut that down. 

    He did note that he called the colleague's wife to let her know of the extramarital affair and offered her free representation from his law firm, should she need it. 

  • There's only one real way to describe this whole situation:


    Good luck with your divorce, SmoothPalpitation!
