Hi Ladies! I need more clarity with what "open to children" means with regards to having valid marriage. As, I have discussed before on this board my about not wanting to have children. As I have been informed I must be open to children within marriage for it to be valid.
Is open to children meaning I want children?
It's hard for me to word what I am trying to say but I will do my best to convey it.
I still have reservations about having children however I am beginning to be more and more open to the idea than I had been before and now I can even see myself being a mother with a child or children. Something that I had never imagined before. That's a big deal for me!
However I was wondering if I still wasn't open to children by the time I got married and I ended up pregnant with a child would my marriage then be valid since I was pregnant?
Or is it that I have to want to children for it to be valid?
I wanted a clearer understanding of that.
Because if I got married and still wasn't "open to children" or wanted children that would make my marriage invalid from the start. But would that change if I happen to get pregnant even if I didn't want children. Is that being open to children or just having a child? I hope you can understand what I am saying.
