Natural Law theory

Natural Law theory is often cited in cases such as birth control. How would you respond to this case study? Two college students, Tom, 19, and Barbara, 18, have decided to live together both for sexual reasons and because they enjoy each other’s company. Barbara intends to take birth control pills, they intend to share expenses, and they have an agreement to be honest with and faithful to each other throughout the entire relationship. They also have agreed that if either one of them wants to break off the relationship, he or she has only to say so and the relationship will end with no recriminations. First, is the taking of birth control moral or immoral (is it against “natural law”); second, is what they are doing moral or not?
