I have to side with GYMSHORTS on this one. I can't imagine the anguish you must feel (if you are being genuine), but it's like crying over spilled milk. You are going to have to show empathy at every corner and be his rock at every turn. I think you know how cruel the word can be to men who fall short. Thanks for this post and welcome to the forum. You will find users who will lash out at you but it should be expected because of everyone's individual experiences which can often be negative.

I would not forgive you. I ended up in a similar situation with my mom. I just ended up hating her side of the family - I still do. I'm an awful 5'7" and my mom is 5'2". The men and women on her side of the family are all short, from 4'11" - 5'6"!!! I ended up screwed and I'm still single.

At least you are honest.

Thanks. I forgot to mention my dad's side of the family. My dad is almost 6 feet tall. The males and females height ranges are from 5'6" to 6'2". I never expected to be a disgusting height of 5'7". I always thought if I was unlucky (for a lack of a better word) that I would end up 5'8" - based on my observations, that's considered a decent height for a guy. I thought I would end up between 5'9" to 5"11; 6 feet if I was lucky. 5'7" is incomplete - you're close to being decent, but you're not. You're still far from being tall and you're still classified as a short male. Generally, women want a tall guy, not just a guy who is taller than them. I have been told that my height would be fine - IF I was a female. 

 

So this crap about owning your short stature is false encouragement. I don't want to be a parent. I don't want a short son.

For david170cm:

Yes, in your case, you must feel like you got gypped genetically.  I know the pain. Almost all of my cousins and 2nd cousins are normal height. I've never been happy for a minute of my life being 5'4". If you think 5'7" is bad, try 5'4". It ranges from 'challenging' to 'hell' in a world designed to favor tall men in every circumstance.  Unlike you, though, I have fathered three children. My sons are 5'11" and 5'8" - both military men.  It can happen. Yes, it's a risk, but a man my size can produce sons that size.  You very well could, too, because genetically you carry the gene for tall males.  I know other men my size who don't seem to be terribly bothered about their short stature at all (which seems bizarre and impossible to me), so it is also possible you could have a son who's your size, but is of a temperament that does not mind it. 

Anyway, just food for thought.  Honestly, until I was 25 I didn't want to risk having any sons either, for the same reason you cited.  But God and my wife changed my mind.  My daughters-in-law are very glad they did.

I would be angry as well, and use it in an emotional argument every chance i get.
It is basically a bully and bad life sentence to get.
 

I would however have wanted my mom to tell me. Finding something of that matter out on my own, would be similar to figuring out that your lifepartner cheated on you.

Tell him, and help him. Be his friend, and kobe with his reality. Go clubbing with him and be his wing man if thats needed.
Your fault, your responsibility

 

However, that you and your housband is short, he most likely wouldnt feel that far off.
