While it might be tempting to avoid conversations about conception and "the birds and the bees" with children, explaining their ancestry to them from an early age is critically important.

Lying to your children about whether or not they were adopted or conceived through a surrogate, egg or sperm donor is only setting you and your child up for a potential future of disappointment and betrayal. Knowing the truth about your DNA can help prevent medical issues down the road, so hiding information about your kid's biological parents could be especially dangerous.

For aspiring parents who are struggling to conceive, there are luckily plenty of options out there to help. Still, being on the same page about which route you choose and how you'll explain that to your future family is necessary. If your partner insists on having a child that looks and acts exactly like they do, there might be some deeper issues to sort out before you decide to parent together for the next eighteen years of sleep deprivation, birthday parties, adolescent chaos and beyond.

So, when a frustrated dad decided to consult to online courtroom of moral philosophy otherwise known as Reddit's "Am I the As*hole" about whether or not he's wrong to break an agreement with his wife about their child conceived via egg donor, people were quick to help deem a verdict.
