Really people? If you were in a horrible situation for having a/more children...

you would just refrain from sex all together? Birth control isn't 100% you know. ... RIght! Sure you would. Quit questioning 'why' people are having sex every time birth control fails... Get a grip.

  • Anon 32, If you have a healthy marriage, then sex is a part of it. Just because I like having sex w/my husband doesn't make me some addict. I have brains, thank you, I also think. Shit happens, birth control fails, unplanned pregnancies happens. Just because I can't afford to have another kid, I'm not going to stop having sex w/my husband. Sounds like maybe you should be having a little bit more of it. Either that or it needs to be better. No one who has good sex on a regular basis will tell another woman to not have sex w/her husband.

  • OP: 'smart enough to get sterilized' is not my issue. WHat if they do want more kids and are in a better situation later. It's when someone says I was on Bc/ used a condom, whatever and every one jumps down there throat about why they were havong sex.

  • Not having sex isn't going to be an option for most people. You CAN double up on bc,use a condom and the pill for instance. If you can afford kids later you can easily go off bc. I think asking people why they're still having sex is dumb. I think what they mean is why are you having unprotected sex if you can't afford kids.

  • You know....it IS possible to live without sex for a long long time.
    And if you CAN'T live without sex,maybe you should consider seeing a Doctor and find out of you have some kind of sexual addiction. And if you don't want to see a Doctor,maybe you can decide whether or not having an uncontrolled sex life is really worth unwanted pregnancies.... since so many of you say that your birth control "failed".

  • I think for single ladies being celibate is possible,but you try telling your hubby he's cut off for a few years and see what he says! Sex is an important part of marriage,it doesn't mean you're a sex maniac!

    I am talking about single women without a committed relationship. Why have babies when you are single? If you are married, that is a different story. But,yeah,get better birth control. I would think my post would be easy to understand but...you didn't catch on ,did you? LOL.

  • If you are married, that is a different story.

    Because the wedding ring is added birth control? Unwanted pregnancies happen to people in every situation. Not every married person would welcome a pregnancy. I've never had an unplanned pregnancy, but I know I would freak out if I accidentally got pregnant. I'm married and stable, but I am DONE having babies.

    I am unmarried, I have a toddler, and I'm in a commited relationship. Sex and children are not reserved only for the married. That may be a part of YOUR set of values, but it's not a part my mine. I'll have as many children as I want.
