My wife and I have been married for 15 years. After a “reversion” back to the faith about 8 years ago we began using NFP. We have four children.
I have struggled with pornography and sins against chastity in a profound way. I also have generalized anxiety disorder. I go through periods where I blame NFP for causing a rift in my marriage. When I am in a reasoned state I know that is not the case. However, I can get very angry with the abstinenance periods. When I’m in that frame of mind I cant even stay in the bedroom at night because my anger level is so high. Unfortunately, it has not been my experience that NFP brings couples together. If that has been your experience, lucky you. I’d like to hear from people who have experienced something like I describe and found a way to feel better about it.
By the way, daily mass, rosary and 2 periods of prayer arent the solution for me…I’ve tried it. I need to reframe the issue psychologically. PLEASE HELP!
