Good day confessors; you know what I love about blogging? It’s the fact that every morning I get up not knowing what kinds of stories the day is going to bring. Today’s confession is one of those that just leave you with a dazed and confused look on your face. Our story comes from a gentleman in Birmingham England, and he wrote this…
(Sup CK??? ...no respect…anyhow)
I cannot take this anymore, I cannot afford this anymore. My wife has had 5 children in the last 7 years, we have 8 in total. Can you imagine having that many mouths to feed in these difficult financial times? I worry constantly about what would happen to them if I were to lose my job. Mine is the only salary coming into house since my wife is “always” pregnant.
I am sure you will not believe me because I can hardly believe it myself but over the last seven years I have had sex with my wife seven times and five of those times she became pregnant and the other two years we only had sex twice because my wife was too tired most of the time with looking after the babies.
My best friend keeps suggesting I have a night out with him on the pull so that I can at least get laid, but that is not my style, I love my wife and our children. It is not my wife’s fault that she is so fertile. My mother offered to pay privately for me to get the snip but just the thought of that makes me cringe. I have considered asking my wife to get her tubes tided but we are both relatively young and it seems unfair for me to ask her to do something that I do not even want to do.
But we absolutely cannot afford to have any more children. It has gotten to the point where I am afraid to have sex with my wife in case she becomes pregnant again. I know there is birth control widely available but my wife and I are devout Catholics and birth control is prohibited in our faith. It would be a borderline sin for my wife to have her tubes tide so I cannot ask her to do that.
Please Carol if you or your readers could offer me some suggestions that do not go against my faith I would appreciate it very much.
Thank you kindly
WOW!! Right now I have such a gormless look on my face as I really do not know what to say to you mate. My first suggestion was to have a tie off, but you can’t do that. Then birth control, but you can’t do that either. SERIOUSLY though is the Pope gonna pay to raise your kids? I do not mean to disrespect your religion but how can the powers that be in the catholic faith be cruel enough to force people to continually have children that they cannot afford to feed.
I do feel that there must be a loop hole somewhere. I cannot believe that God fearing people could be so cruel to their own. The Pope is not starving in any way shape or fashion so why would he want his followers too? I would suggest talking to your priest to see if there is any way around this. You said that getting your tubes tied is a borderline sin. Well that sounds like an “out” to me, because I do not know how something could be a “borderline” sin. It either is or it isn’t.
So I say find out which it is, suck it up and get it cut.
