    Yes, married couples should use protection. When they are ready to commit themselves to children, then they should have children. In a marriage, I believe sex should be fun and fulfilling. I don’t believe it is merely for procreation. I believe we should be able to enjoy our sexuality and enjoy, just the number of children we feel we can commit, time, money and attention too.

    We are sexual beings, and marriage allows us this right within the boundaries of Gods laws.

    I do believe that protection should not be an excuse to have sex outside marriage without the worry of bringing children into the world. Keep in mind; it is another tool to use in the confines of a committed marriage.


    Proverbs 5:18-19 is a good verse to show that sex within marriage is meant to be fun.

    Some religions, such as Catholicism, teach that couples should not interfere with God's blessings. Since children are a blessing from God, couples should allow them to happen as God wills. How would you approach answering this viewpoint?
