Hi, guys —

I would very much like to get short, simple, and clear answers to my question on this issue.

My question is simply this:

  • What can and cannot be done by two married Catholics within marriage with regards to sex?

I have gotten so many mixed answers, I don't know what to do.

Christopher

Bob replied:

Christopher,

The short answer is, married Catholics can have sex that doesn't artificially obstruct its natural end — it's reproductive capacity. In other words, no contraception, or behaviors that would deliberately and unnaturally alter your reproductive capacity.

That doesn't mean you have to try to reproduce every time you engage in sex, but you have to at least be open [to the possibility of reproducing]. What you can do is celebrate each other's love and intimacy and have passionate love making with the promise that you are strengthening your union and maybe even bringing life to this world.

Peace,

Bob Kirby
