A California man who vows to never marry another man and a gay couple who want to have children without a partner is making his own vows, according to a report in the Wall Street Journal.
John St. Laurent, a 28-year-old self-described gay man who goes by the nickname Impotence, says he’s not interested in marriage or children, the WSJ reported.
He has no children and has no intention to wed.
He says he’d rather go into a life of loneliness and boredom, and is determined to stop impotency by making a vow to marry another woman.
“If I have a marriage to a woman that isn’t good for me, I can never have children,” St. Lawrence told the Journal.
“I’m just going to leave.
I can’t have children, not for me.”
He said he would consider it impotent if his wife of eight years, a married mother of two who was in the hospital with a stroke, decided to have an abortion.
“If I want children, I’ll have them,” he said.
“It’s not that I want them.”
The couple, who are both 27, are trying to raise two children together.
The WSJ reports that they have been married for nine years.
St. Laurels’ online dating profile says he is a self-identified atheist who lives in Sacramento.
His Twitter bio says he runs an online business that sells travel kits to people in need.
