I'm gay, married to a woman and my two children were conceived using an anonymous sperm donor and in vitro fertilization (IVF). So yes, we're probably doing this the hard way. On the bright side, however, after spending so much money and working so hard to get pregnant, parenting my kids somehow seems relatively cheap and easy.
This is the story of two couples; two couples who come out of the same post-war generation, and who built their lives around the same emotional core of love, commitment, and devotion to one another. And yet, their relationships were marked very differently by history and by the laws that governed their lives.
