Save and share these cards about marriage and family!
Heavenly Father has charged and blessed us to be fruitful, to multiply, and to subdue the earth that we might become like Him.
In what way does marriage between a man and a woman transcend their love for one another and their own happiness to become “a post of responsibility towards the world and mankind”?
The power of procreation is not an incidental part of the plan of happiness; it is the key to happiness.
Here is the answer: While it was wonderful to see and feel that we have so much in common with the rest of the world in regards to our families, only we have the eternal perspective of the restored gospel.
Everyone, no matter what their marital circumstance or number of children, can be defenders of the Lord’s plan described in the family proclamation. If it is the Lord’s plan, it should also be our plan! It is the plan we agreed to and accepted before we came to this life.
Because of the great joy of the gospel, each of us can and should share that joy with others.
We love being married, and here’s why.
