Soon after, according to Flann Campbell, most Protestant groups came to accept the use of modern contraceptives as a matter of what they considered Biblically allowable freedom of conscience.

We live in an age where is extremely easy to meet someone under normal, everyday circumstances who is attractive in many ways, but does not share your religious affiliation and beliefs. No matter what your religion, in today’s society, moral issues surrounding sex (i.e., chastity, premarital sex, contraception, etc) seem to have become a non-issue.
For most of us, we are exposed to all kinds of people. It seems that everything about society has a pro-sex message and purpose.Scripture tells us that the unbelieving spouse is made holy through the believing spouse (1 Cor. Sacramentally in marriage the spouses are the conduits of grace to each other and in a mixed-marriage of disparity of cult the Catholic is a conduit of grace to the non-believer.If this leads to a free conversion of belief by the non-believer then the church rejoices.The Roman Catholic Church has disallowed artificial contraception for as far back as one can historically trace.Contraception was also officially disallowed by non-Catholic Christians until 1930 when the Anglican Communion changed its policy.The reality is that in order to make this work, someone has to sacrifice their faith for a future spouse. These are things you need to think about before “taking it further” with anyone of a different denomination.
