A Third Option: Marriage-Centered Chastity     “Chastity and fidelity are more than sexual  abstinence before marriage and physical  fidelity after marriage.  This is                                                           because human  sexuality is not                         simply a  physical matter, as the                                 world invites us to believe.

Marriage-Centered Intimacy:  Key Principle: Divine Purposes of Sexuality  n In God’s plan, sexuality is purposeful                                            -  A “means” not an “end” “Sacred powers of procreation”  Unifying spouses with each other  and God – “an expression of love” “The Bible celebrates sex and its proper use, presenting it as God-created, God- ordained, and God-blessed. It makes plain that God himself implanted the  physical magnetism between the sexes for two reasons: for the propagation of the  human race, and for the expression of that kind of love between man and wife  that makes for true oneness.   His commandment to the first man and woman to  be “one flesh” was as important as his                                                         command to “be fruitful and multiple.”   Pres. Spencer W. Kimball
