(quote) Claire-247015 said: I am seeing this constantly in profiles. Wondering why catholics living according to Gods Holy Will for us in Marriage would chose this? My sister has 2 kids because thats all God sent her. She was sad for a while but eventually recovered. So 1-2 kids is not her Ideal.
More than 5 is my ideal because I have 8 living and miscarried 4 more. I would have liked more but time ran out. That was Gods plan for me. So why 1-2 as IDEAL.
Anyone know. Help needed.
I wished I could help you out, however I don't know how to read people's minds or thoughts when they answer their questions??? For me, I would have loved to have 10 kids, ;0) I love kids and I know they are definitely gifts from heaven. I always dreamed of big holidays, looking across a huge table of kids fighting, food fights, later gradually when they grew, I'd look down that huge table, and see all the daughter and son-in laws with all the grandkids, and just sigh at the sight of a huge family. There is nothing like family, some would say you can't afford to feed that many mouths, how do you put them all through college. Well how did my grandmother do it who has 12 kids? They were poor, lived on a farm, grew their own food and just lived without having materialist junk. They had God, they had love and hard work.
Here is to people return to the idea of allowing God to determine how many children he wants to bless you with
Then there is the natural Catholic family planning, where if a family needs a few years between kids, you can always exercise the methods of the teachings of the Catholic Church, you can also have a dialogue between each other as husband and wife and have open communication along with self control.
