A man's wife wants to be a surrogate. He doesn't want her to do it because of the strain it will put on the family. Who is right?


Mike & Kate-
My wife and I have two kids under the age of 5. Her cousin is unable to have a baby and has asked my wife to be a surrogate. My wife wants to do it. She pretty much told her cousin she would do it figuring I wouldn't have a problem with it. I love my wife. I love my two kids. But getting them was not easy. My wife is not a very nice person when she is pregnant. She swears she loves being pregnant and that might be the case physically but mentally she was a mess. On top of that, my company is taking the managers on a cruise in January. We have been looking forward to this for months and it will be our first vacation since our youngest was born. My wife has pretty much made up her mind about this. She claims it's her body and she can do with it what she wants. Her cousin is going to pay her $10,000 for carrying the baby and my wife claims we can use that to take a family vacation after the baby comes. We have already said we would go on the cruise and my company has booked it. I have to go. I want my wife to go. I just don't want her to be pregnant when we go. My wife says I'm being selfish and that this is an amazing gift she can give her cousin. I think it's going to really upset our family and that it's a bad idea. Who is right?
