Will you stay in a childless marriage?

My friend has been married for almost 15 years now. Happily and content. The first years have been a blissful one, according to her. But lately, boredom seems to occupy their hearts and minds. The couple have been childless for ten years now and this sad fact put too much strain on their marriage with her husband staying more time outside with his buddies than with her. Giving excuses, going out. The couple have sought medical help for several times but no one can explain why they weren't gifted with the opportunity to be proud parents. Her husband has rule out any adoption plan. Fear of separation always haunt my friend's mind. Fear of one day waking up without any trace of her husband at home. She love her husband so much but she knew that only a child can strengthen and restore their happy marriage. Isn't marriage about giving unconditional love? Is being childless a justified reason for a marriage fall-out? Will you stay in a childless marriage?

No, being childless is no reason for a marriage to be destroyed. When you marry someone you must be prepared for a situation like this. If you are sure that you can live with this person even if there is a possibility of not having a child by him/her then it is really love and I think this kind of marriage would last. I personally would still stay in this kind of marriage.

Yes I will stay...Even the law here in our country state that the inability to bear a child is a ground for annulment I will never leave my husband for that reason-even he is the one with the medical problem and I'm in a productive age to bear a child still I stay because I love him. Love alone is a reason to be happy in marriage till your golden years never in the marriage contract in the church detailed that you have the right to leave your partner in term she/he can give you a child, but in our civil law it says so. For me the most important thing in marriage is that you get married because you can't stand living alone without that person and having a child is secondary yet is very important to some. Maybe we should try to be contented with what the lord god want's us to have and to cherish things we already have and accept the reality of what we can't have. There is always also a possibility of adoption.
