I feel so much better that the pressure is finally shared --somewhat -- when it comes to the question of having children. In particular, the right time to have children. Careerist women have always struggled with the notion that if they wait too long, they might not ever get a chance to have healthy children. The risks of having babies at a later age does come with increased risks. But now, increasing studies are showing that men also have a "cap" for producing healthy babies if they're over 40 or 50. Several recent studies are starting to persuade doctors that "men should not be too cavalier about postponing marriage and children."
Some advocates, however, welcome the attention being paid to the issue of male fertility, saying it is long overdue and adding that it could level the playing field between men and women in the premarital dating game.
