We’ve seen how disputes about frozen embryos can easily get complex and emotionally delicate (See Part 1 and Part 2 in this series). No one wants to imagine they will divorce but when there are high emotional or financial stakes, any unresolved issues can cause conflict later. Assisted reproduction can even involve more than just the divorcing couple.
