I am wondering if there are any other Catholic women out there who are NOT planning on doing NFP once they get married, and will be (or already are) on the pill instead. I have seriously looked into both as an option and have decided that the pill will be able to provide me with the best security and the least amount of stress, especially since I will be working full time and going to grad school part time, and my fiance will also be working full time. Does anyone else have different reasons for doing so?
Sometimes I feel like I am alone in my decision to use the pill instead. I also have mixed sources as to whether or not it is actually "forbidden" by the Church. My mother has always said that it is, but my MIL (who is licensed to teach the Catholic faith) says that it is not. What are your understandings about this matter? I am very interested to hear!!
(*Disclaimer*: I am posting this message to get feedback from women who are choosing to/thinking about using the pill instead of NFP, and to have a good discussion about it. I am very sorry, but my mind will NOT be changed about using the pill, so please do not post here to try and convince me otherwise, tell me that I am a horrible person for not using NFP, etc. Sorry to sound like a meanie, but I just have to be sure
