Default Breaks with NFP?

I am interested to know more about how long breaks are allowed to be during marriage while using NFP? What factors go into this? Also, if you do consummate your marriage on your honeymoon, but after that choose to wait a year to have a child while using NFP, is this ok?

Default Re: Breaks with NFP?

It's not clear from your post that you know all of what NFP entails. Basically, you continue to have relations with your spouse, but abstain on the days when the woman is able to concieve. You don't have to go a whole year without sex!

Using NFP to avoid pregnancy needs to be accompanied by a serious or grave reason not to have children. Provided that you have a serious (financial, medical, social, etc...) reason, there is no time limit on how long you can practice periodic abstinence. Your are constantly being called to prayerfully discern your situation, however, and if this serious or grave reason goes away then you must stop practicing periodic abstinence.
