Man can become a gift—that is, the man and the woman can exist in the relationship of mutual self-giving—if each of them controls himself. If an act is immoral due to the circumstances, the same type of act may be moral in different circumstances. This 'object' is the end in terms of morality toward which the act itself is inherently directed or intrinsically ordered. Emotions are not knowingly chosen acts. For substantiation regarding teaching on contraception:
Is Marriage Without Sex Really a Marriage?
Maria Goretti, 6, Inseg. All three aspects must be good -- the objective act, the subjective intention, and the circumstances -- in order to have a morally good act. It is a mistake for someone with sufficient experience to anticipate occasions of sexual sin to ignore the question until already deliberating about doing something which might be such an occasion.

Since central truths of Christian faith employ concepts drawn from marital and familial relationships, no one can accept the faith who does not understand well the human significance of a father, a child, a brother or sister, a faithful spouse. The first marital intercourse consummates the marriage by making the husband and wife actually to be one flesh. Since, therefore, the conjugal act is destined primarily by nature for the begetting of children, those who, in exercising it, deliberately frustrate its natural power and purpose, sin against nature and commit a deed which is shameful and intrinsically vicious. Paulist Press, , 97—, explains this point well, though not all parts of this book can be recommended. Finally, when adulterous relationships result in conception, paternity may be uncertain and, in any case, the child, if permitted to survive, seldom is raised in a stable family see S. It follows that to be able to give oneself in marital intercourse so that the act means something, one needs self-control sufficient to be able to choose not to engage in intercourse when reason, considering all the relevant goods, calls for abstinence.
