Why must a couple be able to have children to be married in the Catholic church? What if it is physically impossible? Why should they be denied?

First, a couple who is through not fault of their own unable to have children will NOT be forbidden to marry in the Catholic church. If, for example, the woman is infertile through no fault of her own, she can still marry in the Catholic church. However, if a woman had her tubes tied, that is considered a form of birth control, which is against the teachings of the Catholic church. Or if a man is rendered infertile due to alcohol or drug abuse, he may be forbidden from marrying in the Catholic church. Hope that answers your questions. Love and Light, Rev. Shelly
