The transmission of human life is a most serious role in which married people collaborate freely and responsibly with God the Creator. It has always been a source of great joy to them, even though it sometimes entails many difficulties and hardships.
However the birth control aimed at limiting population has:-
- Demeaned motherhood and most women thing that it is the most backward thing to go for.
- Only child of parents are a spoiled lot and think of themselves as little emperors or empresses.
- The act of sex has been divorced from marriage and procreation
- Modern contraceptives have given many an exaggerated sense of safety and prompted more people than ever before to move sexual expression outside the marriage boundary.
Sexual union in marriage ought to be a complete giving of each spouse to the other, and when fertility (or potential fertility) is deliberately excluded from that giving something valuable is lost. A husband will sometimes begin to see his wife as an object of sexual pleasure who should always be available for gratification.
