Did an eclipse occur with each full and new moon?

A solar eclipse does not occur at every new moon, nor does a lunar eclipse occur at every full moon, because the Moon’s orbital plane is inclined to the ecliptic, the plane of the orbit of Earth around the Sun. The angle between the planes is about 5°; thus, the Moon can pass well above or below the Sun.
