I consider this “stolen” time.
It feels like I was just a sperm donor. In fact the best man at my wedding even warned me and said that once she had had her kids she would toss me away.
“you will meet a woman who will be very educated, work with children and be charitable. She wont believe in G-d as you do, but she will honour your beliefs and keep a kosher home. Before your 35th birthday she will give you a daughter named Sarah. You will have two more children, a son and a gift.”
