    They don't view a marriage without children as invalid. They DO, however, insist that the couple be open to the procreation and raising of children.

    It's not being based on the ability to breed. It's having kids in general. He feels that the whole idea of children is a non issue in regards to marriage. I said that when it comes to a Catholic marriage, the idea of children IS an issue.

    if you feel comfortable simplifying it that far I will gladly concede the point, children are an issue for catholics
