Scenario: 75-year-old man is recently widowed, and takes a young 30-year-old never-married woman as his second wife. So far all of this is kosher (no pun intended) with all major denominations of Christianity, right? Let’s say this man is still able to have sex and his sperm are still viable.
Would the anti-birth-control denominations of Christianity be okay with he and his wife using birth control, as they are concerned that any baby won’t have a dad past his/her 10th birthday? Or are they still against it, with the idea that all acts of sex must have the opportunity to lead to conception, and so this couple should just practice monogamy if they don’t want to get pregnant? Or maybe they feel that God would only give this couple a baby if He felt they were prepared to take care of one.
FYI, I am asking because I encountered a couple in a similar scenario today, although they had already had the baby and were not concerned about the dad being too old. So it’s not implausible.
