Hi, Winston —
No, because he is not married, and
sex outside of marriage is forbidden.
A friar, like a monk, is a religious,
and religious take vows of chastity
which prohibit them from engaging
in any sexual activity.
- A monk is a contemplative, meaning
his purpose is primarily to pray,
usually separated from the world.
- A friar does apostolic work in
the world, like preaching and
feeding the hungry.
