I am a non-catholic married to a (non practicing)catholic I have decided to attend mass because my husband and I need to get back into church. I am thinking about converting but have several questions.
After our second son was born I had a tubal ligation, since this happened before do I have to have this reversed?
My husband and I are having severe problems and we a planning on seeking help from a priest but, I read this statement Sexual intercourse is termed the Marriage debt. This refers to the idea that Marriage is a contract where each party assumes total control of the other’s body. At almost any time, within reason, a partner’s asking for the fulfilment of that debt must be satisfied. Like any repayment of a debt, when done with the right intention and circumstances sexual intercourse is a meritorious act, gaining graces for the participants.
I am having difficulties having sex with my husband when he is very hateful and disrespectful to me and If I do I feel violated. By this statement am I sinning by not having sex with my husband?
