The ONLY circumstance that I can see any form of contraception as being OK in is an instance where the contraceptive is not being used as a contraceptive. For instance, the Pill is often perscribed to women with Endometriosis. I would prefer that doctors embrace other means of caring for women in this situation, and if they do not seek other means, but simply perscribe the Pill out of personal convienece, I would find another doctor.
The principal, biblical reason for marriage is the begetting of Children. Of course, in our day, those couples who are unable to concieve can (and should!) adopt.
While sex is a good thing, and is a act in which a husband and wife are to be joyful in. . . sex divorced from it's principal God-given intent is sinful and wrong.
