A year ago he had a pulmonary embolism. He's okay now, he just got off the coumadin actually. And before that his senior year of high school (I didn't know him then) he had a blood clot in his heart that required open heart surgery to be removed. Needless to say he isn't the most lucky person when it comes to health.
That could be another reason that he isn't thinking about
kids right now. It's hard to be thinking about
having kids if you are worried that you won't be healthy enough to provide for them emotionally or monetarily or that they might also have health problems.
I think that having ones sperm frozen isn't a commitment to have children though. It's a safeguard just in case one changes one's mind down the road.
