I guess your responses feel a little bit like a dismissal. Like you are saying that there is no point in discussing "responsible parenthood" because it will just lead to judgment of others.
I'm not dismissing it in the least!
(hence my "absolutely" in my last post..???)
I'm saying your original post suggested judging situations where you probably weren't privy to all the details.

I am not completely against NFP but I am starting to feel like it is very difficult to practice without a contraceptive mentality and that the default for our marriage should be providentialism.
Most of the people I know believe that the default should be NFP for the sake of "responsible parenthood".
I am curious about other peoples opinions?
Has anyone else stopped using NFP permanently or never used it at all?
I understand YOU are now considering trusting God for YOUR marriage - that's a WONDERFUL *gift *that suggests you probably don't have any "just reasons" that are troubling you.
But it's just that... a GIFT. You've been BLESSED to not have the same troubles that others may have.
Suggesting that others are all as "blessed" as you, in this aspect, is a little presumptive.
