I have a friend who is just broken to pieces because his wife wants to have her tubes cut so she can’t have any more children. They have only two. He says that she said she wanted 4 before they were married, and that he wanted 10, but he compromised with her on 5. He is distraut because he says she wont listen to him. She claims it is her body and her mind that are stressed by demanding, relentless, misbehaving children all day, and she is just going to go down and have the simple operation done and not tell him about it. He says, what about the promiss she made him before they were married? What about learning how to shape and raise children so the chaos isn’t so intense? But he says she wont listen to him. He is destroyed and desperately seeking a way to resolve this. What should I tell him? I don’t want to give him any non-Catholic advise, but he is clearly wrapped up in emotional turmoil over this. Any suggestions?
Thanks. God Bless,
