May married people use condoms?

Hello, I am a young practicing Catholic who is just looking around for answers for questions about the Faith that I sometimes come across.

Today while browsing through the forum I saw a question I thought would be interesting, but I did not find it logged.

So, I’ll just get to the point.

Is it immoral to use a condom during intercourse to someone you are married to?


Yes it is immoral for married people to use a condom for the purpose of contraception.
