Newlyweds Reject God's Blessing
BEND, Oregon - Tom and Jill (last name withheld), joined last month in holy matrimony, say they have no plans to have children immediately. While the couple was counseled by both sets of parents that birth control is a selfish rejection of God's blessing, Tom and Jill struggled with their own position on the issue.

"We talked about it a lot before marriage," said Tom, "and we decided that our marriage would be stronger if we could have some time--perhaps several months--just to ourselves. We love children, but we don't want any right away."

"I'm sure we're breaking my mother's heart," said Jill, who comes from a family of eleven children. "She wants a grandchild so bad--I know she expected a birth announcement when we returned from our honeymoon."

Tom predicted the holidays may be a little uncomfortable. "Jill's 4 year old sister asked everyone at the dinner table why Jill don't have any babies yet."

"Right now we're just pretending that we're having trouble getting pregnant," he said.

It took my wife and I over 4 years to submit and have our first child. I finally feel "fulfilled". Only 12 or 3 more kids to go. I don't want to be caught with a half-full quiver.

My wife and I had kids right away, not because we were eager for kids right away, things happen .. anyway .. enjoy one another while you are still kidless. I now have six and my wife is usually too tired to pay much attention to me. Now I work a lot to pay for them. I love them much. Just wish I would have had more time with my wife.

Unless you are asking them for pointers its not their business what is or isnt happening on the kid front.
