Often I read things from couples who want to limit the number of children so they can afford to give them college educations and send them to catholic schools.
On the other hand I’ve read that the church teaches that when considering how many kids to have, one should consider the best interests of your existing children as well as the interests of any future children you will have.
So how can you balance college educations with more little people to love and serve God? Is there any limit to how many kids you should have?
Even if you’re on welfare and you have 20 kids, thats 20 people to love life and love each other and love God. How can we even compare the chance at life with things like college? It’s not your fault if you have to go on welfare: the laws in our country don’t allow kids to work to help support the family.
