I recently converted to Catholicism and married my husband last year. We had dated for 9 years prior to marriage. He grew up in a Catholic family but only re-joined the church and its beliefs in the past couple of years. Now that we are married he has stated that we can no longer have sex. He says that as a married couple our roles have changed and that sex is only for procreation now. He is unsure about whether he wants to have children, so we have not had sex for over 7-8 months. In fact, he says that according to Catholicism you can ONLY have sex if it is for procreation. I have tried to debate this and have asked if this means that older Catholic couples cannot have sex. We are seeing a therapist, but she doesn’t have background in Catholicism.
Can someone please advise me?
