Just wondering....why do people think its weird to still use condoms while being married?

I was just reading a post in a group that someone was asking why would someone use a condom if they were married? A few people agreed and found it weird. Why? Its totally just out of wonderment! (is that a word lol). My hubby and i did after our son was born cause i did not want to get pregnant again. So even though i was on the shot i still wanted to make sure lol. And i probably will do it again after the birth of the next child. I just have the idea that bc isnt always 100% so why not use them? I know its not as good with them on then without lol...but we werent ready to take the chance yet

What are your thoughts?

  • I don't think it's weird. It's a form of birth control.

  • I agree with you. I don't do well on BC and i have tried a few different kinds. Me and my husband just stick to condoms (or pulling out if it is really heated, which I know doesn't work lol). When I tell my friends this they think I am nuts! I think most married couples look as condoms as something to prevent std's not pregnancy and since we are married we don't have to worry about std's.

  • I agree not weird at all. No form of bc is 100% effective except no sex at all, and really who wants that? lol. I use the nuvo-ring when I'm not pregnant and we still use condoms because we don't more kids after this one. And I agree with the first anon on the std part.

  • LOL because it just felt weird. COurse my pills did fail (however turns out orthotricyclen has a fairily high failure rate.) Plus I hyper ovulate (probably due to my weight or hormones in all our food). Guess I must just be a dumb ass, because after the twins are born, I'm switching to a much heavier hitting form of birth control, along with a spermacide or a sponge.

  • I don't think it is weird either. Personaly I like using them even though I am on the pill, mainly because it's less messy after doing " the deed!" lol!
