Frequently Asked Questions
regarding
THE INTENTION OF HAVING CHILDREN
FOR A VALID MARRIAGE.


Q. 1. Is it true that a marriage is not valid if one of the spouses did not intend on having children at the time of marriage?

A. 1. According to the teachings of the Catholic Church, for a marriage to be valid, both spouses must be open to the possibility of having children.

Openness to having children means that both spouses will not intentionally plan not to have children, either by denying the other spouse marriage intercourse to which he or her is entitled or by taking other actions to avoid pregnancy.
