Usually, because the wife is infertile or otherwise unable to undergo pregnancy. In so-called traditional surrogacy, the surrogate mother is impregnated through artificial insemination with the sperm of the husband. And in gestational surrogacy, the wife's ova and the husband's sperm. Are undergoing Vitro fertilization, and the resulting embryo is implanted in the surrogate mother.
