Do they present NFP as something that everyone has to/should do or do they allow for exceptions?
I know I'm not doing it----as much as I know Jesus wants me to check my cervical mucus and temperature everyday---because I have to be on birth control anyways to control cysts. I probably wouldn't do it anyway, honestly. Either way you're trying not to have babies anyways so why go with the less effective/more difficult one with more room for error?
So what would they say to that? It seems like kind of a strict teaching and I suppose I could just sit there and nod but I would like to take the whole thing seriously and be honest. I am very excited for the marriage counseling and talking to a priest and everything but am a little nervous---esp since the church's stance on certain things gets my blood boiling. I know a lot of other brides have felt they were being judged or are nervous about it and I've heard some horror stories myself. I mean the priest at my local church is off limits for me and my fiance because he told my cousin her granddaughter (who lives with her) couldn't be baptized there because her parents were drug addicts (which obviously isn't the three year old's fault, is something that will hurt her when she is old enough to understand, and she lives with her normal, loving grandparents now!)
So what has your experience been with these type of issues and who else is kind of nervous about being judged/feels they have to be dishonest in the process?
