After our conversion last fall, my husband and I realized that his vasectomy was wrong and we decided to have it reversed. (surgery done Aug. 16) While we are open to having another child, my question is how many do we accept? We have done a lot of reading on what the moral reasons are for postponing pregnancy either temporarily or indefinitely. We don’t carry any of those reasons. Both my husband and I are healthy, faithfilled people that could handle a few more kids. Financially we are considered “wealthy” and could financially support more children. My question is this: can a couple postpone more children (indefinitely) simply because of their age? I am 40 and my husband is 45. While we are excited about having another child, I am not sure if two or more excites me too much. We feel sad about the seven years we lost because of his vasectomy. We truly believe that we “should have had” 3 to 4 more children. Does that mean we should have 3 to 4 more now? I don’t want to be giving birth until I’m in menopause. Other than age, (if that’s a legitimate reason) we have no reason to postpone pregnancy indefinitely. What do we do?
