They don’t bother me, it’s just annoying, and I’m sorry to hear you’ve struggled in that department.That’s a really, really sh*tty statement to make about a woman – if I heard this regarding myself, I’d spend a day in tears. And it has nothing to do with surrogates in India or the price of tea in China – it’s a woman’s choice to procreate or not as she sees fit. Not everyone has the best faculties for making that choice (looking at you, Octo-mom) but regardless, it’s their choice. I agree, Teacakes. I’m constantly shocked at how people take it upon themselves to judge how other people choose to conceive. Frankly, I find it appalling.DarkSparkle, I wasn’t going to add anything more to what I already said yesterday, but your story brought tears to my eyes. What a wonderful gift your friend is giving you. I wish all the best to you in your dreams of becoming parents.
I have mixed feelings about this. On one hand, I think that it really is not anyone’s business how people start a family. On the other hand, when you choose to discuss your choices in a magazine, you open yourself up to questions. I don’t really agree with using surrogacy simply because it’s inconvenient for you to get pregnant or you don’t want to give up your body. I feel like that implies some lack of commitment to motherhood. But then she can do whatever she wants! Perhaps it wouldn’t have seemed so odd if she had had sense enough to sugar coat her reasoning a tad?Kitten, do you think it is a coincidence that the nations currently with the highest number of surrogacy cases just happen to be those with extremely high poverty rates? Really? You think that’s by chance? Teknoloji haberleri, otomobil haberleri, ürün incelemeleri, videolar, kültür-sanat, dizi, sinema ve popüler-bilim haberleri.. @meme I am pro-choice, but I believe that a person who kills a pregnant woman should be charged with two murders. Not because the fetus is or isn’t at that point viable, and not because a fetus has “personhood” but because the parents intended to have the baby and that chance was taken away from them by the murderer. I think you are trying to use the law to show that a fetus is a person, and you have a right to your opinion, but legally, you are not correct. The feticide laws specifically state that nothing therein grants the fetus personhood and/or can be applied to abortion.
No I didn’t misunderstand anything. In that case, 41 year old men don’t need to impregnate anyone either since they have “geriatric” sperm. An issue that never arises with men. Society would come to a standstill if both parents were super-parents. Not possible at all. The reality is in a society with mostly nuclear families one partner gives a little more than the other when it comes to childrearing. We are now at the stage where some of us feminists are saying I want to be a mom and I want to have my career. Luckily for us, some men are right alongside us supporting our choices and it would be nice if other women got on board instead of judging the woman in the scenario to be callous and unnatural.. I strongly strongly dislike scenarios in which women/minorities are only accepted to the extent that they act like men/white people.
Dylan Lauren is more than just the face of the brand; she's a working executive who pays attention to the tiniest of details. At one staff meeting, the subject was marketing a new line of Married to financier Paul Arrouet, the couple has young twins, appropriately named Cooper Blue and Kingsley Rainbow We’re currently (not literally!) in the process of at-home insemination with a friend of ours – I’ve been in menopause since I was 22, will be 35 shortly, and she stepped up and offered to carry for us. The path leading up to this point, mentally, emotionally, and financially, is nothing I hope you judgey snipes ever have to go through. To hear you lost the biological lottery regarding fertility is devastating, NO choices after that are easy or made lightly. People choosing for their own reasons to bring a healthy, wanted, and loved children into this world through surrogacy shouldn’t be shamed. A large number of US military wives actually become surrogates while their husbands are deployed. They often already have a couple kids and are stay at home moms. Husband is gone for months on end, making it very difficult for them to have any kind of outside employment even if they wanted to. They can make 35 – 50 thousand dollars on average for going thru pregnancy as a surrogate, while staying home and watching their own kids. Just from my 1 military wife friend, I’ve met 3 of her military wife buddies who have done this, and the least anyone made was $35,000. They all seemed really happy with the situation, saving up for a new house down payment or their kids college funds. Plus they felt like they were doing something good for another couple. I fail to see how this is not a win-win.
Given the reaction here, in a place generally open to civilized discussion about women’s choices, it would have been interesting to see if this had been a discussion during a presidential campaign. Mitt Romney has at least three grandchildren born through surrogacy to parents who had had children previously and at least one of the parents was a “stay-at-home.”Eh, I get this. If you want a career, you need a husband who takes parenting seriously, and who doesn’t consider childcare “helping out” or “babysitting.” Getting a puppy is much like having a baby. You have to wake up every two hours when they’re very young, they destroy everything when they’re toddlers, and you can’t really trust them alone until they’re older.Meme: not 9 months, but you forget that an essential element of any feticide law is that the fetus must be viable – meaning it must be able to live outside of the mother. Very, very few abortions take place after viability, so in almost all cases, there is no second person to speak of because the life is not viable. Today, viability occurs somewhere between months 5-6, generally speaking. 3-4 months is not.You don’t have to experience pregnancy to know that it sucks. Mine sucked twice and I told my sister all about it, so I’m sure she knows. I didn’t have any complications, I just really hated being pregnant, and if we could have afforded it, I would have used a surrogate for #2 in the blink of an eye. Being pregnant and being a parent are two completely different things, so not wanting to do the first, doesn’t mean that she won’t be a great mom and love her children.
. And I think some men would be even more hesitant about having kids if it involved several months of hormones, nausea, weight gain and a grand finale of taking a bat to the groin for several hours.Yeah I always thought it was a package deal, pregnancy and babies (although there are obviously medical reasons to use a surrogate). Not everyone will enjoy pregnancy, but not everyone enjoys newborns, sleepless nights, toddler tantrums, moody teenagers ect. I don’t think you should just opt out of the stages that don’t tickle your fancy.‘Obviously wrong’? You seem to be projecting here. And you omit the fact that countless women happily make the decision to bring the joy of parenthood to couples and are proud of the pivotal role they play. You insult these women if you insinuate that they are poor, desperate victims. You should familiarize yourself with the stringent surrogacy requirements before you make such loaded statements. In some states a woman can not be a candidate to be a surrogate without having a supportive life partner, children of her own already, a positive, emotionally stable lifestyle and clearly dileanated reasons for wanting to be a surrogate. In other states paid surrogacy is illegal and yet women there freely choose to carry for family/close friends with no financial compensation.bnot all surrogates are preyed upon. You seem to be conflating surrogacy with stories of seriously desperate women who have been pressured to give up their infants for adoption. Even those stories are rare.This thread is all over the place with a great deal of judgment in place. Essentially, what it should come down to is that if a procedure is legal, which this is in the US, and it is handled ethically by all involved, with no exploitation, none of us really has a say in how one woman chooses to deal with her own body, be it the surrogate or the woman who hires the surrogate. Added into that is a great deal of rhetoric and some judgment about what motherhood or parenthood is, which, as a woman who always wanted children but was deprived of that opportunity by life-saving medical treatment, I just can’t with that discussion. I never had a choice. but am constantly subjected to insensitive comments about “starting a family.” An individual’s family is what that individual chooses to consider one’s family.
This all began at her sixth birthday party, when her parents played the classic movie "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" for Dylan and her friends. "I love that movie. And I've probably watched it a hundred times since," Lauren said. "The idea of wanting to live in this magical candy land is something I wanted to bring to life."“Surrogacy is an informed choice”. So that’s it? No context? And the socioeconomic underpinnings and consequences of such ‘choices’? And everyone is so informed? Yeesh. Tell that to third world women. ben kingsley. dwayne johnson. dylan mcdermott. lauren parsekian. laurence fishburne. laverne cox So, based on how Dylan expressed herself, I side eye. I may be wrong and her choice of words was unfortunate, but to me it sounded like she got the children mostly to keep hubby happy and only once he had proven himself capable of providing care because he was willing to wake up and walk the dog. (Can’t even dignify that with a comment- no oven se to pet parents but having had both, there is no bloody comparison.) Yeah, if I had the option of getting naturally pregnant at 41 while taking time away from my career versus paying a surrogate. I’d go with the surrogate any day of the week. I don’t need to experience the childbirth to make that decision, not in 2015, with there being more than enough examples to allow me to choose whether it is for me or not.
. I remember when there a post on a family website about two gay men who had paid for a surrogate in India to carry their twins. They flew over to meet with her during implantation and right before the birth. A lot of people in the comments really to exception to it, because India is pretty notorious for surrogacy and how badly the women generally get treated. They aren’t paid well, they are often confined to “birth houses” for the duration of the pregnancy, their food and activities are heavily controlled, etc. It’s a bad way to be (for reference, VICE did a story on Indian surrogates that is really unnerving). The couple openly admitted that an American surrogate would have cost too much for them so they went with India. Well, didn’t they ever stop to wonder WHY Indian surrogates are so much cheaper? Because they’re desperately poor women who are exploited by profit-driven agencies and parents who will look the other way. Being gay men desperate for a baby doesn’t change that they had a responsibility to not exploit a poor woman in the developing world. Dylan Ariel Lauren was born on 9 May 1974, in New York City, USA, the daughter of author Ricky Anne, of Jewish Austrian descent, and renowned fashion designer Ralph Lauren, of Jewish Belarussian descent. She is an entrepreneur, best known as the founder and President of New York City’s store “Dylan’s Candy Bar”.Yeah I don’t get those. Women choose to be surrogates for a variety of reasons. This is no handmaid’s tale where people are strapped down and forced to get pregnant.
The assumptions being made on this thread are just ridiculous. And all to assert some sort of moral high ground…SMHI’m going to be that woman so I’ll probably have to hide in some bushes after writing this but if I had the money I would have choosen a surrogate as well. Pregnancy was horrible for me (both times) I was sick, had complications and even all that aside I really didn’t enjoy being pregnant at all. Doesn’t mean I don’t love my daughters or being a mother I just didn’t enjoy being a “baby oven”. There is nothing wrong with wanting kids but wanting to use other options. I mean who am I to judge? If work was her reason so be it , does it seem selfish to some? Sure! But that’s life. Its her life and she did what she thought was best for her. I think we push this message that all women should love pregnancy and by carrying your baby it makes you more of a woman and mother but none of that is true. All that does is cause shame and hard feelings for those who can’t carry their children (fertility reasons) or make other choices by election.
Wow! This the same group that screams for pro-choice. And what a woman’s does with her body is her choice. Are now BLASTING a woman for making a choice that’s right for her? The hypocrisy is thick here.im not talking about spending every little second with a kid but that woman makes it sound like spending any amount of time that could get in the way of her career is too much. then why get children if you dont want them and dont really want to restructure your life?That has nothing to do with anything. Alpha means he is going to be the parent at home with the kids most of the time. She has a business that she needs to travel for and apparently that she loves. Why are women always expected to give that up when they have children? I love my job. If I get married and my husband wants to have kids I would still bring up adoption of an older child as an option because shit I don’t need to take the time off that I will have to if I get pregnant. The business world is freaking hard for women and when you start having to take off for doctor’s appointments, birth, recovery, etc. you are getting forced behind others and having to wait a lot longer for a promotion.
This may be OT, but I have become curious about something regarding motherhood. For those that say because women give birth to babies we become the primary caregivers, then why do people harp on about single mothers and such? I mean, since women are the main caregivers. And since women are the main caregivers, what do fathers do since fathers apparently are not needed in the care of children…In 2001 Lauren founded “Dylan’s Candy Bar” at 15,000 square feet of prime real estate in New York City – claiming to be the largest in the world – being inspired by her childhood love of “Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory”, a movie version of Roald Dahl’s classic children’s novel of the same name. The store focused on offering a wide selection of candy and candy inspired products. It was created with Lauren’s goal to merge candy, fashion, art and pop culture. As the candy business grew rapidly over the following years, stores were opened in other places, such as East Hampton, Los Angeles, Chicago and Miami. Lauren’s net worth was certainly well established.These twins were clearly wanted by both parents. So maybe celevrate their life and tell Lauren how cute her kids are.
@absolutely, it judgmental to make value judgments against others because they don’t share the same opinion on how life should be livedThat’s what I thought too. It sounded like she wasn’t the type of woman who really yearned to have a child, but she saw that her husband really wanted to have children and would likely be willing to put in a lot of the work to take care of them. She didn’t want to be the (only) one to give up everything to take care of the children and he fine with putting in the work as well, so she was on board with doing it. I’m sure other things factored into her decision to go the surrogate route. Maybe they wanted to have children soon but she had a lot of other things going on and with her age, she didn’t want to do those things while pregnant, but she can still do them with babies. I don’t think she has to tell the public every single thing that factored into her decision to go that route. She started out vague and has slowly been explaining more (not that she has to). As long as her babies are loved and well taken care of, nothing else matters.

And “choice” only has meaning when it is actually free. The desperately poor don’t have free choice – they have the illusion. A woman who can barely eat will almost never say no when offered free housing, free food and compensation – all she has to do is submit to some pretty nasty treatment. Yeah, that’s a great example of “my body, my choice.” Only in the First World could somebody think that.Eh. The woman is 41. I feel like she knew trying and trying this late in the game may not work out and prove stressful and potentially damage her career and her marriage….maybe I’m crazy and would make a horrible mother, but I totally get why she did it. She’s just not hung up about it in a way that would illicit sympathy from anyone. Which I think is refreshing, she’s not dwelling on something that’s pointless to dwell on. @sam … Scott Peterson was charged with 2 counts of murder…one for his wife and one for his unborn child. Where do you draw the distinction? 6 months, 9 months, 5 months? GOOD FOR THEM!! If it is medically possible for them to choose their path to their family with more options then GOOD FOR THEM. I would also guess that the emphasis on her career as the main consideration behind surrogacy is more a matter of context being placed by the author of the people mag piece. But if not so what. Women hating and judging other women for their choices like its some kind of contest to be perfect is just gross and subverts the advancement of equal rights.“I’m side-eying her commitment to her kids, based on her flippant attitude toward it all so far”
In my country, someone who murders a pregnant woman would be accused of murder plus forced abortion, but not for murder in two cases. An the reason given for it is that from a legal point of view, life starts at birth.I’m 38 and in the childfree camp as well. My husband and I have several dogs and cats and eventually want to have more land for an animal rescue but just a couple of days of having our young niece and nephew during the holidays reminds us that we do NOT want children. Lauren Baker. Dawn Beckles. Lauren Baker I think there’s a difference between actively not wanting to have kids and having them just to appease your partner versus being apprehensive or ambivalent but being willing to do it because it’s what your partner wants. It sounds (to me) like she falls into the latter category.

Fact of the matter is, I LOOK FORWARD to checking people who would have the gall to question my reproductive choices. They are mine to make and if my hubby and I can afford it, we most definitely will. That will not make me a “bad mom”, I have successfully taken over raising my stepson the MAJORITY of the time. His mom has her own life and barely sees him and I stay at home and do the lion’s share of caring for him while his Dad runs several businesses (i.e. busy). He is a happy well-adjusted kid and behaves WAAAAAY better while in my care than in that of his birth mother, who actually carried him via pregnancy. So WHO carries the baby, doesn’t matter so long as the parent has decided to prioritize their life to caring for them.Why should it be a package deal? How is surrogacy any different than paying someone to give up their baby through an adoption process? (Both are a-ok with me… and it doesn’t matter what the reason is). This would not make news if it was a man saying let’s have kids but you’ll have to be hands on since I have a career I love. Who cares how she went about it, she will be a great example to both her kids.
@littlestar Diapers are WORSE. When we had my eight month niece with us, for only a month, I swear to you she overflowed her diaper (up her back) at least three times. And then she doesn’t want to lay still—she’s very busy and likes to grab onto EVERYTHING, so if you don’t give her something that she usually doesn’t get (because God forbid you give her a toy that’s actually hers)….like a wipe or a phone…..then she’ll kick her legs. And it doesn’t matter to her if her diaper is open or not. She doesn’t care.Lauren’s entrepreneurial skills, which she inherited from her father, led her to be featured on the cover of Forbes magazine in 2011. Her other honors include getting the nickname the Candy Queen by notables such as Oprah, and getting her own portrait made out of jelly beans by Jelly Belly, being among only 10 women in the world to have got that.I take it, you didn’t adopt yourself, did you? Because I don’t think anyone who adopted or is adopted would ever post something like this. Because, actually, no, there are not enough babies out there that are adoptable. Many people invest years of their lifes and thousands of dollars trying to adopt and not all succeed. there are many children that need loving families but a lot are older and a lot are not up for adoption, just fostering (which means that they could go back to the birth parents or relatives at any time).
Ha! Kismet. I just commented regarding true *freedom* of choice, and the illusion of choice- the fantasy fed to everyone to silence us about the power differential. Dylan Lauren (born May 9, 1974) is an American entrepreneur. In 2010 Lauren released a book, Dylan's Candy Bar: Unwrap Your Sweet Life. her father's design. On April 13, 2015, Dylan and her husband welcomed fraternal twins, Cooper Blue and Kingsley Rainbow Arrouet, via surrogate. I didn’t really want kids, but my husband did. If I’d had the money, I would have hired someone to have the kids for me. I hated being pregnant, both times. Hated it so much, that I’m not going to ever do it again, no matter what. And yet, I love my children and I am the primary parent – my husband is away from the home from 9am-7pm. Being pregnant has nothing to do with being a mother. Those babies were mine the moment I saw their faces and I would feel that way about any baby that we would have been privileged to call our own, no matter how that baby came into our family. Oh, and I also have a bunch of degrees and a career, though I work part time, and my kids are with nannies/preschool while I work! I must be an awful parent, according to 90% of commenters here. Thank goodness my girls think I’m amazing and know that I give my everything to them every day!@Sam She may not have to work but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t want to work. Not everyone wants to live off family money. And CEOs don’t really clock out. Even if she can delegate she’s still expected to be available. So it’s not as simple as delegating to others.
The places where surrogacy is currently booming are Thailand, India, parts of China, etc. Basically, places with huge numbers of women in the underclass who can be talked into this. When we see it boom in First World nations, maybe your point will have merit. Learn how to play your favorite songs with Ultimate Guitar huge database.

Dylan's Candy Bar owner Dylan Lauren and husband Paul Arrouet are busier than ever, now that they're parents of 4-month-old twins Cooper Blue and Kingsley Rainbow. Given everything on their plates, Dylan said she has no regrets about bypassing the hassle of nine months of pregnancy surrogacy is like exploitation, ok i know some women are actually willing to rent their uterus it’s ok, but majority of women (i am talking about poor women from poor countries ) are being exploited, i don’t understand how any women can clap for this.. Anyway the twins will be happy to know one day that their mother was to busy to travel to caring them.
+1 Even if you don’t support her decision, at least respect that she made the right choice for herself and her family.The NYC mom had a housekeeper/nanny who took care of everything in the mornings for the kids, got them up, made their lunch, got them dressed and took them to school while the mom slept in until around 10. The mom got up, worked out with her personal trainer, showered and met her friends for a long lunch. The nanny picked the kids up from school, took them to their lessons, activities ,friends, park, etc., then brought them home where they had dinner. The mom spent about an hour with her kids before showering and getting dressed so she and her husband could go out for the evening with friends and business associates. This was her daily schedule and I remember how appalled I was. But it seemed that is what everyone in that social circle did, so it was their “normal.” Dylan Lauren. Pinterest. Categor
People are being rather judgey. Not saying she doesn’t come off as vapid, but she isn’t the devil.I love how everyone is freaking out because basically – she’s has the attitude of 85% of all dads before they have kids. He’s obviously going to be more of the at home figure – so so what? Not every mother has to want kids so bad she’d just DIE if she didn’t.Wow, some sweeping generalizations here based on very little information. Based on my own personal sample of working mothers around me, it’s incredibly difficult to balance motherhood and a career at any stage of a child’s development.

Ever since she announced on Oprah that her father, with. A lot of people use child care, day care, home help. Are they all shitty moms too? Or is it just bad if a priveleged woman uses a nanny?I’m sorry but did I miss something in the article? Did they talk about who her surrogate was and her economic background, etc?This. There is a huge differnece (to me), between using surrogate when you CAN’T carry your child and when you WON’T carry your child. Having children means realizing that you’re not the most important person in your world anymore: your needs come after theirs (of course, I don’t mean to extreme!): that is, or should be the truth for both parents. I’m afraid people will attack me after this comment, but the way I feel is this*: if you can’t take 9 months of being sick, or tired, or unable to do your job/live your life the way you’re used to, or how your body changes, why even have a baby? What will you do for the next 18 years? 20? 30?No. It was her statement that basically she didn’t want children and only had them because her husband wanted them. If she never wanted children and only had them to appease her husband to the extent she didn’t even want to try and get pregnant because it would mess up her business life, how involved do you really think she’ll be with them?
I think you’re being way too judgy with someone who hasn’t shared all of what she feels about motherhood in this article. For a successful businesswoman to say she was apprehensive about motherhood (understanding the sacrifices needed) tells me she’s self-aware and thoughtful about her decision to become a mom. She knows she doesn’t want to give up her fulfilling work but knew she had a husband willing to take more of the responsibility of raising the kids, so that makes this a doable situation to me. Besides, you don’t know how much she is involved now that she is a mom. Really, you need to get off your soapbox and realize that not all moms want to be primary caregivers, but that doesn’t diminish their love of their kids.Gawd, I hated being pregnant. Did it twice, but was not a fan of the whole process. I LOVE being a mom, though. Sean and Siobhan are the lights of my life. But I don’t think my having carried them in the cause of my deep love for them. I would love them this much even if I found them behind 7-11. The Mandy Network is the #1 jobs platform for actors, performers, filmmakers and production crew | Find your next gig today There are plenty of legitimate reasons to use a surrogate. Most involve the inability of the would-be mom to carry a child to term. A friend had multiple miscarriages because her body kept attacking the fetus and the only way she and her husband (who are middle class, not rich people) were able to have a child was to use a surrogate.What a brave new world, a world that’s becoming increasingly dystopian, and people are buying into it. Who’s leading the charge? Why, the 1%ers, of course! And it looks like money excuses everything.
It could be. It could also be just a different lifestyle than most of us are used to. I remember a few years ago when Wife Swap first started they had a New York socialite mom of 3 (I think) swap with a “regular” Stay-At-Home mom who was very involved with her kids’ lives. télécharger les meilleurs magazines, journaux, livres, bande dessinées, romans, ebooks, livres audio et autoformations gratuitement en PDF, epub, mp3 - Bookys..
I don’t have a problem with surrogacy, and I do think the children would be really yours if you used a surrogate. She just seems like she wasn’t that into having kids at all. She wants him to be the parent while she has the candy store, she only agreed after she saw that he walked the dog…I don’t know. Maybe she just used unfortunate language but it just seems so unenthusiastic.Having children isn’t the same as a marathon, where you get to have a medal only if you ran the full race. Either way, she has the kids and she’s a parent now, with a husband who appears to be happy with being a primary caregiver (what my mum wouldn’t have done for one of those in the 80s…..).Sorry, if you’re too busy to be pregnant with your own babies, then you’re too busy to care for them also. Yeah, it’s a brave “new world.” For rich people who can afford it.

the problem is that other women are forced to be a surrogate due to financial reasons. there are some who do it in very special circumstances like a sister or for a friendly gay couple but thats pretty rare. if you dont want to get pregnant and want to have children why not adopt? in the end another woman will have to be the “baby oven” for you. And i dont think women should love pregnancy or must have children, just that i personally am against surrogates because it seems to be only great for the people who pay them.Pregnancy sucked for me and, looking back, it was totally an inconvenience not worth having. The kids, though, are an inconvenience *completely* worth having, so if you can get the second without the first, then it doesn’t matter why she chose to do so.She’s also in her 40s now, which can complicate pregnancies. It’s more difficult to get pregnant, and you have a greater risk of birth defects. Combine that with the need for travel and working a high-stress job…where is my data ? do some research about the exploitation of surogate mothers in third word countries. And now you are going to compare Giving your sperm to a pregnancy ? because sperm donors risk their lives during 9 months or childbirth in poor countries right ? enlighte me, i would really like your opinion on what is more dangerous giving some of your sperm or a pregnancy ?
Don’t force her to tell you her entire story on why she chose to use a surrogate just because you want to know. You have no idea if they also tried IVF or suffered miscarriages or anything else that might push them to use a surrogate and she has no requirement to make it a public conversation if she does not want to. @kitten, mimif, and starrywonder – oh good, so it’s not just me.

Personally, I don’t believe children are something you should be ambivalent about. If you’re not sure, hold off. The massive responsibility is not something that should be entered into half-heartedly. Frankly, I’ve seen enough people who were really not cut out for parenting to know this to be true. I don’t think children are a “gift” you give a spouse. They’re a calling that not everyone has, and that’s fine. But that rubbed me the wrong way.BUT WONT SOMEONE PLEASE THINK OF THE CHIlLDREN!! *clutches pearls and runs away* ok leaving for real now bye!I just wanted to say that though the circumstances were different, I sympathize with you on the pressure to reproduce. I think it’s SO rude for people to be so intrusive. My first husband’s family was constantly questioning me and asking whose “fault” it was that we couldn’t get pregnant, and my present husband’s family just gave me sighs, sorrowful looks and murmurs about the family name dying out with my husband, which it will, thanks to my failure as a woman. It’s such a personal thing, and I think you are making the most unselfish and mature choice. It’s not for you. Why they want a woman who doesn’t want children to have one is pure selfishness on their part. So, I hope their comments don’t bother you because they should mind their own business.

For Dylan Lauren, that fantasy is a reality.

QUOTES FROM Dylan Lauren CHARACTERS. No quotes approved yet Hugs to both of you, Algernon and GNAT. My huz would tell people “Don’t have children unless you have a burning desire to have them” because it is a lot of work and requires a massive amount of unselfishness to be a good parent. No one should be putting pressure on you Algernon to have them if you’re happy and content without them.Wow. Go through my responses. I never said one word about her as a parent. Not one word. My thoughts have all been about (generally) people who seem to have no regard for the conditions or exploitation of the surrogates. The surrogates are a complete afterthought because it was their choice and they got paid well. People keep waffling on about how they hate pregnancy and it was terrible for them and they still don’t feel like themselves after years…but then turn around and say they’d have a surrogate in a heartbeat if they could pay for it. I don’t understand the disconnect. It was terrible for you, but you have no problem paying another lower class woman to do that for you? And people are kidding themselves if they think upper class women are doing this for $30k a pop. In the summer of 2011, Dylan Lauren married the handsome hedge-fund founder/partner Paul Arrouet at her parents’ 300-acre estate in Westchester County, NY. As was to be expected, her father designed for her a striking wedding gown, a handmade duchesse-satin, silk-tulle, and georgette-embroidered dress with tiered train. “It was a special collaboration because he knew it would be the most important dress I’d ever wear. He knows exactly what looks good on me and respected my comfort needs and my personal taste”, says the lucky bride. The theme for the grand affair was Marie Antoinette meets Alice in Wonderland meets Willy Wonka in typical Dylan style.But if one thinks pregnancy is “inconvenient”, I could go on and on about the greater inconveniences (developmental delays, health problems, bad teachers, bullying kids, etc) I’ve had with my 3 kids…and I haven’t even hit the teenage years with them yet!
When it comes to her personal life, the Candy Queen has been married to hedge-fund founder/partner Paul Arrouet since 2011. Lauren is involved in charities, especially those fighting for animal causes. She is a passionate supporter of Humane Society and American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.If I was supposed to get the message that I was supposed to love pregnancy at all costs, message fail. : ) I regard it as a very special, very miserable time.
Yeah…I read that People interview at the OB’s office (ironically). Not sure how I feel about using surrogates for the convenience. I try to not be judgy (though it bubbles up on occasion) – it seems a little too dystopian. There are the “birthers” and the “workers” …I side eye this, not caring your own kids because your are busy travelling but raising kids for 18 year is gonna ask more comitment than 9 months of pregnancy. Plus the excuse for work ? There is a lot of women who are able to work while they are pregnant, anyway good Luck to those kids
Tifygodess, I’m with you. I hated being pregnant but love being a mom. If I’d had the kind of money she had, I could see myself going the same route. We make so many sacrifices as parents, that finding a way to avoid an inconvenience here and there, without doing harm to others, is fine with me.My idea of feminism is letting people do whatever the eff they want without judgment or fear of repercussion.Because they get paid that makes it fine? People get paid to do a lot of things, it doesn’t make those things fine simply because they got paid well.

Children are more than “well, my husband wants kids.” Children come primed to build meaningful relationships with both parents. If she didn’t want to be a mother, in my mind, she owed it to her husband to be honest – and yes, that might have had serious implications for the relationship, but that’s a risk that one would have to take. They are her children as well as his. What if one of the children is inclined more towards her and wants to build a meaningful relationship with her, but she’s just too busy or doesn’t really want to? That will severely impact that child. Geez. It’s so obvious if you do research. Just read Sam’s comments. Or is this just trolling/ignorance?So judging her for a surrogate or wanting a fulling committed partner in childraising as she builds her business, who cares, as long as they are loving and involved parents. There’s parents all across the country who screw up their children, rich or poor.Someone think of the poor surrogates!! (who make 10s of thousands of dollars to improve their lives).i find surrogates to be totally wrong. first of all its obviously taking advantage of disadvantaged women. a discussion thats rarely held, how rich and powerful women exploit poorer women. the emancipation of mostly white women is mainly based on them oppressing other women. Like the succesful CEO paying her female maids and nanniess below minimum wage.
Gah!!! From a woman who is still working on her post-pregnancy body 3 years down the line: I wish I had Dylan’s money!!! No exercise in the world seems to be helping my inner thighs. And never felt a single emotional stirring while pregnant. Just gas and heartburn. Bonded with the “sprog” only when she started recognizing me. Ghastly, isn’t it?I wholeheartedly agree with what you said about how we push a motherhood is perfect womanhood message. I read about a group of women once who started a blog telling how hard it is and how it’s ok if you don’t love every second of having a newborn baby or being pregnant. But I think you need the desire to have children. Maybe she will fall in love with them and be a great mother, who knows? 2.9m Followers, 5,820 Following, 105 Posts - See Instagram photos and videos from Dylan Sprayberry (@dylansprayberry) “No one demands that men sacrifice their bodies and their careers for parenthood, and now women have choices as well. ”I realized a long time ago that it is none of my business how people choose to create their families. And as long as people are not abusing and neglecting their children or otherwise breaking the law, it really is none of my business how they choose to raise them.
When my sister had her first baby, my parents were at the hospital at 1 am because she wanted them right there. At one point my brother-in-law said to them, “Well, I guess my life is about to change for the next 18 years.” My dad said, “How old is your wife and do you see where we are at 1 am? No, your whole life is about to change.”I can’t agree with this statement. There are different reasons besides not wanting to get pregnant that people use surrogates. One of my dearest friends was unable to get pregnant because of a past medical condition and she used a surrogate. She would never have her beautiful boys if not for the special woman who carried them for her. After 10 years she still keeps in touch with her surrogate and sends pictures.

Dylan Lauren born May 9 1974 is an American entrepreneur She is the daughter of American fashion designer Ralph Lauren and the owner of New York Citys D. On April 13, 2015, Dylan and her husband welcomed fraternal twins, Cooper Blue and Kingsley Rainbow Arrouet, via surrogate "As a kid, seriously, I think seeing my dad have these jars of fabric and swatches to design his shirts, I wanted to eat the fabric because I thought it looked like candy -- it was so beautiful," she said. Dylan Lauren is also an author, who penned “Dylan’s Candy Bar: Unwrap your Sweet Life”And pregnancy can be miserable. I’m trying to gear up for it again, but holy god, is it vile. It’s really more her attitude that reads to me, “I didn’t really want babies, and I’m too busy to be pregnant, but whatever, here they are,” that is offensive.
