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.
while it may be a common practice, it is in no way a reason to accept it.
as far as I am concerned, there's honestly no reason why a urologist performing such a procedure even needs to know my reasons for having an elective procedure, let alone if I am married or not. HIPPA and ObamaCare and every other national federal database/bureaucracy be damned
