Pro-Creation: Answer

The Avnei Nezer suggests that in a case where the mitzva will be nullified for life then it is necessary to spend even more than a fifth on the mitzva. That is why one must divorce his wife if she is unable to conceive for ten years even though she is clearly worth more than a fifth of his money. So in a normal case of course one need not spend more than a fifth, but in our situation if the person doesn't divorce his wife he will never fulfill the mitzva of procreation. [Note: Today it is no longer customary to get divorced in such a case.]
