    Orthodoxchristianity.net Donation Drive

    So maybe we've beaten a dead horse on this topic, but I can't recall via memory or search whether or not the specific question I have has been answered. If an Orthodox Christian has no desire for children whatsoever, does that mean he/she has no business getting married?  Robert
