I’ve read many of the threads about the use of nfp on this site and I’m still a bit confused on a few things. What exactly counts as a just reason to use nfp? I’m not married yet and I would like to have kids someday but I dont think I would want a large family. Is it selfish/sinful to use nfp to limit the number of kids you have because you want to have a moderate number of children(say 3-4) because you think you will be able to provide that number a good quality of life etc?
Some posters seem to think that using nfp and limiting the number of kids you have is sinful. I’m no expert but I think its irresponsible to have a large family that you cant adequately provide for. Honestly I’d like to have 3-4 kids so that I would be able to provide for them the best that I can, and still have some time/money to go places and do things-is this a sinful use of nfp?. I come from a family of 3 kids and I think that my parents did a good job.
One last question- if a newlywed couple is in a fertile time during their honeymoon can they abstain/use nfp because they are still getting used to the whole being married thing/ dont think they are quite ready for parenthood yet?
Sorry for so many questions, Im just a bit confused:D
