The man, for reasons widely speculated upon, but ultimately unknown, had informed the woman that he wanted children, but would only adopt.
The woman, at this point, ended the relationship.
The common view among the gossipers was that the woman had made the right call... but I should say, all of these gossipers happen to have biological children of their own. Perhaps that's a factor in their judgments.
So, I put it to you, daters... assuming you were a person who wanted children, would you end a relationship with a partner who also wanted children, but would only adopt?
Would the person's reasoning matter? What if the person was genetically infertile, as opposed to say, someone who simply believed there was no need to add one more life to a crowded planet, but wanted children anyways.
For the males, would you date a female who wanted children, but preferred to adopt to preserve her own body?
