And now for something completely different....... There are women in phoren who are unmarried... and get concerned about being too late (too old) to conceive a healthy baby, and fearing that their chances for snagging a responsible one to father a child are too slim, go for having a baby without the benefit of a man to do it. Fertility clinics stand in for this service. I had been following all the Brexit Politics in UK for quite some time. And one of the weirdest consequences of the UK leaving the European Union without any trade agreements is the higher costs in customs for imports from Europe into the UK, as well as the shipping delays as shipped items sit and wait to pass through the customs bureaucracy. Apparently British women want kids with Vikings-DNA , and Denmark, a member of EU, is the supplier of the material. It was Andrew Rawnsley’s column in last week’s Observer that first made me aware of the danger a no-deal Brexit would pose to British sperm supplies. Up to 50% of our sperm is imported into the United Kingdom from Denmark alone, its cross-border movement currently micro-managed by EU organ and tissue directives, but now red tape may leave fresh sperm rotting at customs. <more at source> Since marriage chances could be as good in some cultures for single parents with a child, there is no harm in having one when the mind and body are ready for it. And the country's laws and practices help a single parent. Love can wait.
