Intimacy and Sexuality
They Twain Shall Be One: Thoughts on Intimacy in Marriage - Brent Barlow [September 1986]
Thoughts on intimacy in marriage. Our natural affections were placed in us by the Spirit of God for a wise purpose. Neither the husband nor wife should be in sole control - both should be diligent in their commitment to each other. Intimacy can bring growth and happiness to a marriage.
Making the Right Choices - Richard G. Scott [November 1994]
A family begins when a man and a woman are legally bound in marriage. The Lord then permits them to use their sacred procreative powers. No sexual contact is permitted prior to marriage.
Same-gender Attraction - Dallin H. Oaks [October 1995]
God created us male and female. What we call gender was an essential characteristic of our existence prior to our birth.
