My husband and I are expecting our 3rd baby, and we just found this out recenty. My husband thinks that 3 is enough. While I agree that 3 may be all we can handle for a while, I don’t think we should do anything permanent.
I thought I had ran into a link on this site a while back about the dangers or downside of a vasectomy (from a medical, not religious, perspective). I can’t seem to find it in a search. Does anyone have that? While my husband is Catholic by title, I don’t think he fully understands why the church teaches this is wrong. He knows I don’t agree with it, and may do it anyway.
I have to say, too, that I do understand why it is wrong and still feel tempted to let him go ahead with it, because right now 3 children sounds overwhelming. We have a terrible time at abstaining in Phase II (obviously), I refuse to go back to ABC, so poor dh is seeing a vasectomy as the only solution.
Keep us both in your prayers.
