Google "Permission from wife to have a vasectomy".... the results will astound you. Sounds like it's a very common practice.
I totally believe that something like this should be decided between a man and his wife, but for practitioners to go as far to require permission, and that there hasn't been a serious outcry because of it.. that astounds me.
