      When we attended the required pre-marital classes, the couple who taught the session on "natural family planning" had SIX kids....and they were only about 30 years old. But of course, "they were all planned". LOL!!

        NFP works great!  Our local paper had an article on fertility and birth control a few years ago, and the couple chosen to tout NFP claimed it worked "100% of the time."  In the five years of their marriage, they had had three children.  

        Without multiple births, and without birth control, how many kids can a woman reasonably produce in five years?  Right around three?  At the time, I wondered why they hadn't been able to find anyone who had fewer kids than pretty close to the max you could possibly produce in a given time period, but I guess those people are really hard to come by.

        These kids were also all "planned," but if you're "planning" a kid every 18-20 months, why say you're using birth control that's "100% effective?"
