Question:

I would like to know if having children for a married couple is 
obligatory in general. Would it make a difference if the husband wants a 
child and the wife doesn't or vice versa? If so, what can wife or the 
husband do about it?

P.S. Still making taqlid of Imam Khomaini (R.A.)


Answer:

Having children is not OBLIGATORY.  However it is the purpose for which a
marriage has been recommended.
