Introduction

Marriage Coursework-AO3 Evaluation "Sex is only right within marriage and should always be open to the possibility of conception." Do you agree or disagree? Give reasons for your answer showing that you have considered more than one point of view. Sex is the special bonding between two people and has a huge importance to a couple in a relationship, it can bring them closer together and in marriage is significant as it is a key to life giving which is one of the 4 main beliefs of the Catholic Church. Some may argue that sex outside of marriage is god because it's a learning experience in life; it can bring a couple closer together without the strain of marriage being a burden as if there is no sexual relationship then a marriage may fail as a result. ...read more.

To some it may feel uncomfortable or in fact could be the wishes of the couple's parents. In my opinion I believe that sex before marriage is good because it can make a person feel more comfortable with their body as well as a partner which can make a person feel more confident during sex and therefore make it less tense. A person may find out their true sexuality being straight or gay by having sex before marriage to realise their true feelings towards others. Some people believe that contraception is acceptable, it's known to be reliable and they help reduce the risks of sexually transmitted diseases between two people. It's much less hassle than the Natural Family Planning Method which is the only method recognized by the Catholic Church. ...read more.

Conclusion

I feel that the Church do have a strong and valid point but it's up to the person whether they feel it's wrong or not. Overall, sex should be special which I think is more exceptional when a married couple do it but the use of contraception should be used if the couple feel as though they're not yet ready for a child yet want to have sex to feel the love between them. Therefore I slightly agree with the statement as I think that sex is more special within the marriage but the idea of always being open to the possibility of conception is something that is down to the couple depending on how they feel about the subject of children.
