Thank you for your Question

1- It is not necessary to have a physical relation with your spouse on the first night of your marriage. However, this Is not a solo decision. It has to be a collective understanding of both husband and wife. And if the husband is
Willing to have the relation and the wife has a genuine reason not to be able to comply, (for instance she is in her period) then she must explain herself to him.

2- Protection is allowed in Islam. In other words family planning is a wise decision and it helps couples adjust well before they welcome loving children into their loving lives.
