Why We Don’t Use Contraception

Jackie and Bobby give their reasons for not using contraception in their marriage.

While sharing the Church’s beautiful teaching on sex and marriage, they explain why sex is more than recreational.

The biological and theological purpose of sex is to bear children. Whenever a husband and wife give themselves to one another freely, totally, faithfully, and fruitfully, they are saying “I do” just as they did on their wedding day.

They are also saying “fiat” like Mary did, and “not my will but your will be done” like Jesus did.

  • “These two meanings or values of marriage (the unitive and procreative) cannot be separated without altering the couple’s spiritual life and compromising the goods of marriage and the future of the family. The conjugal love of man and woman thus stands under the twofold obligation of fidelity and fecundity” (CCC 2363).
