Why giving up contraception can make you a better husband (Video)

NFP

Diocese of Parramatta | YouTube | Fair Use

Cynthia Dermody - published on 10/16/18

A man who traded contraceptives for natural family planning reveals why he'll never go back.

One of the (many) great things about Natural Family Planning is that by its nature, a husband has just as much thought and responsibility in the creation of their child and the start of their families as his wife does. Rarely do we hear the male perspective on this aspect of marriage, so it’s refreshing to hear one man reflect on how using this natural fertility method has had a positive effect on him and his relationship with his wife.

“One of the unexpected benefits of this process is becoming a better man,” says Vasco, who was asked to talk about his personal experience using NPF for the Natural Fertility Services of the Diocese of Parramatta, Australia.

Take a look at the video and hear it for yourself — and share with any male friends you know, even those who may be using contraception:
