Natural Family Planning and the Marriage Covenant

How do we reform the marriage preparation process?  Here are a few selected from the steps given in Sex and the Marriage Covenant: A Basis for Morality.
      The basic norms of marital chastity must be taught, that it is immoral to engage in masturbation, whether mutual or solitary, complete oral and anal sex, and contraceptive intercourse whether withdrawal-ejaculation, using artificial barriers, or using drugs and other devices. 
      Engaged couples should be taught the God-given meanings of marriage and of sex within marriage, namely that God intends that the marriage act should be a renewal of their marriage covenant.

For more on the marriage covenant, read Sex and the Marriage Covenant: A Basis for Morality.

For a rebirth of chastity, for a stop to contraception and abortion, and for a culture of life, let us pray.
