Chapter 50
When first Mr. Bennet had married, economy was held to be perfectly useless; for, of course, they were to have a son. .... Five daughters successively entered the world, but yet the son was to come; and Mrs. Bennet, for many years after Lydia's birth, had been certain that he would.

Even Mrs. Bennet is not foolish enough to believe she will have a son if they are abstaining. I always took this be mean they kept trying for a son until it became impossible.

Also, I don't think LIzzy would see it as a fault if "breach of conjugal obligation" meant abstinence. I agree with Suzanne O about the context.
