karis, it does sound like people are trying to be helpful, but ... well, how presumptuous, if you're already doig what you want to do, now.
what i've seen, up-close, of trying to "hunt down" a husband or wife to fulfill the biological imperative:
one woman ended a global career doing charity work that affected perhaps millions of people in desperate straits, because time was running out. she married an old hometown sweetheart, hoping to have children. the courtship was short, also for this reason. she found out within a few years that he was abusive and had bouts of madness. no baby, no husband, bad situation.
another impregnated his new girlfriend because they both wanted children and she was running out of time. they had a fight, she vanished, and he spent $40,000 in attorney fees just trying to *find* her and *see* his own child.
i'm sure it ends more happily for some last-minute clock-fulfillers, but i haven't happened to see it.
