Tori vs. Dean: Is an Adrenaline Rush Worth the Risk?

Dean McDermott and Tori Spelling

Last week, motorcycle enthusiast Dean McDermott (of "Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood" fame) took quite the spill on his bike, puncturing his lung, "messing up a few things" and landing in the ICU.People magazine reports that he's out of intensive care now, but it'll be a while before he's in the clear.

If you watch "Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood,"you know that Dean's wife, Tori Spelling, has held a firm anti-motorcycle stance for quite some time -- to the point that it seemed to fuel a rift in Tori and Dean's relationship. See, her beef wasn't about the fact that her hubby had himself a hobby, it was about the fact that he had a hobby that could potentially cause him bodily harm -- or worse. And now the poor girl is facing one of her biggest fears (while taking care of two small children, mind you).

This sitch got me thinking: Do we owe it to our partners and our children to stay out of harm's way when it comes to our recreational activities?

Don't get me wrong -- I'm all for parents striving to preserve a hunk of the pre-kid part of themselves, be it through a hobby, an adventure or what have you. But in this case, I'm inclined to agree with the woman. Would I have jumped out of a plane in my 20s? Hells, yeah! But seeing as I don't have to do it for work and I have two young kids to take care of, no adrenaline rush is worth my potential inability to care for my kids due to a busted limb, confinement to a hospital bed ... or worse. So I get my "me" on by doing things that don't involve parachutes.

What say you, guys? Are recreational risks worth taking once you have kids?

Discourage litigation. Persuade your neighbors to compromise whenever you can. As a peacemaker the lawyer has superior opportunity of being a good man. There will still be business enough.
