Meet Lilly: a middle aged, Caucasian, university graduate, and infertile.
Meet Jane: European, university drop out, fertile, illegal immigrant.
Lilly and Jane both have one thing in common though, they are both Army Wives.
Jane can't understand Lilly's want of starting a family at her advanced maternal age nor why Lilly would want to go through so many infertility treatments to get pregnant when children are just an unwanted part of sex. Jane already has one abortion under her belt and has two children of which she finds to exasperating more often than not.
Lilly is deciding to discontinue fertility treatments soon and move on to adoption. Jane tells Lilly that if she ever becomes pregnant again, by accident mind you since she is trying to prevent more children, she will let Lilly adopt.
Jane falls pregnant by accident as all fertile people seem to be able to do. How it is an accident is beyond Lilly's logical thinking since as far as she knows sex is usually the culprit unless you are infertile and then it involves a team of doctors.
Jane feels bad that she is pregnant but tells Lilly she is going to abort, AGAIN! Jane tells Lilly that she would have to choose between her dogs and this baby and frankly Jane says that she is more attached to her dogs. Really what do having pets and having a baby have to do with one another Lilly thinks. Lilly offers to adopt the baby but Jane says no. But that next year Jane might try again for a take home baby.
At this point Lilly is having a hard time holding her tongue. She is questioning her faith in God. She is also wondering why her friend is torturing her like this. Jane even asks Lilly to watch her children for her while she has the abortion. Lilly can't handle watching the children and says sorry to Jane. Lilly has to draw the line some where as the emotional pain is just too deep.
Now dear reader here is a question for you.
Do you think that the friendship will survive? There have been other issues where Lilly has been badly used by Jane in the relationship but this is just a peek into their friendship.
I think this relationship is doomed.
