The power of this intimate marital sharing of love enables spouses, with God’s grace, to create a home that welcomes children.
With NFP, spouses respect God’s design for life and love.
They may choose to refrain from sexual union during the woman’s fertile time, doing nothing to destroy the love-giving or life-giving meaning that is present.
Therefore, the mutual gift of fertility is an integral part of the bonding power of marital intercourse.
That power to create a new life with God is at the heart of what spouses share with each other.
Learning an NFP method is an important step to strengthen a marriage. Because the methods of NFP respect God’s plan for marriage! Whether an individual marries or not, everyone benefits from marriage.
