Can a husband prevent his wife to get pregnant?

The Details of the Question
Salam, I’ve been married for two years now, and my husband still doesn’t want to have a kid while I’m dying to have one. So I need to know any hadith or fatwa that can speak on this matter either it is halal, haram or makruh; if a husband prevents his wife to get pregnant?
The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

One of the purposes of marriage is to have child and to bring up the child as a good Muslim. If one of the spouses says to delay having child with a permissible and reasonable excuse, it is complied. If says not to have child any time, that demand is not permissible, it is not complied and when insistently refuses to have, there occurs a right for divorcement. (Prof. Dr. Hayrettin Karaman)
