    97 - NFP IRL: Marriage is Ordered to Procreation

    Ever wondered what it really means that marriage is ordered to procreation? Why do we sometimes get people who think the only reason for marriage is having children? 

    The primary end of marriage is procreation, but what does that mean for us and how do we work that into our discernment of avoiding or achieving pregnancy?

Kathleen Van ,

Thank you Ellen!!!

This podcast has been amazing for my own growth and the growth of my relationship. I discovered this podcast two months after starting NFP and it has really changed my life. The topics she covers are so relavent and relatable and have helped me deepen my faith immensely. I appreciate Charting Toward Intimacy so much and recommend it to ALL of my friends!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!

Expanding the convo, but also not..

This podcast has been really helpful, but as a non-Catholic who knows of other non-Catholics who use nfp I wish Ellyn would mention that non-Catholics use nfp and it’s not purely a Catholic only thing. It would also be nice if she interviewed a non-Catholic every once and a while to get a non-Catholic perspective. I feel like we are excluded, forgotten about, and left out of this conversation. NFP should be promoted to everyone, not just Catholics.

Thank you!

I just want to say thank you for creating this podcast! As a woman who has been practicing NFP for 12 years with her spouse, this is the real deal conversation that I have been craving! Thank you for opening up about this topic! You are awesome!
