I describe myself as an orthodox Catholic. I would never ever ever think about using any form of contraception. I will be married next year. I know many faithful Catholics who don’t use contraception and all of them have families of 7+ kids. A few have 10+.
My question is: How are you suppose to limit your family size? To me, it seems impractical to have that many kids. I believe at some point the quality of their life goes down because with each kid you have the less attention you can pay to any individual one. I suspect that in a family of 10+ kids its hard for the kids to have that intmacy with their parents, or be close with each other.
I know a guy who comes from a family of 10+ and I asked him if he is close with his siblings, he said: “just a couple.” He has trouble remembering names as well sometimes.
Before you say anything, I know full-well about NFP. But I also heard that because you want only a certain number of kids is not a good enough reason for using NFP. I also heard that trying to get finances in order is not a good enough reason. What is a good enough reason? What about quality of life of your family? Of your children?
