    ABC News: Never too Old? Woman, 72, has Twins

    Is the "need" to carry on the family name REALLY that important, to spend your entire life savings and take out a loan to undergo fertility treatments, when you're over 70 years old?

    Some things make no sense whatsoever. How in the world would a woman in her seventies consider herself fit to raise a baby, and twins, no less?

    Oh come on now...

    Because their a "FAMILY" the church and conservatives find no issue with this.
    They are a "Normal" family...

    Never mind the fact that she could die at any day, or that she'll be 82 when they are 10 years old.....

    Another fucked up Family.

    Well, that exact thing happened in my family. My mom's first cousin's first wife died and he married a woman in her early 40's who had other children. When he was 72 she gave birth to their last child. He is doing fine. The only problem was that he had to switch out of grandpa mode into parent mode if he didnt want her to be a total monster. She is now entering her teens and he doesnt look like he is slowing down any time soon. But then people in my family live into their 100's.

    I would imagine the couple's previous children will end up caring for the child. Like many alternative familial arrangements, it doesn't bother me all that much if the children live in a strongly bonded large family group and will be raised in a household where there will be others to take up a part of the childcare. I imagine the parents' other children will end up doing the bulk of the care of these children anyway. I think it was somewhat unnecessary just to have a male heir, but I also live in the US and haven't been subject to that cultural pressure.

    I think it's probably a different situation than in the US where you have two parents and the children living in relative isolation from the rest of their family, so it's slightly different. This is an assumption, of course. I guess as long as the children are provided for financially and emotionally I'm not too worried about how old the biological parents are.

    I pitty the poor kid having to breast feed from that. EWWWWWWWW!

    I guess she'll be able to breast feed while they lay on her lap.

    Undersky could you be any more hot looking, I doubt it.
