Is the NFP (Natural Family Planning) section necessary?
If your diocese already has a strong NFP component to your existing marriage preparation program, this section can be skipped. We included the NFP talk because we believe the topic is vitally important in marriage preparation, and programs around the country need to offer a sound and convincing presentation of this critical marital issue. The God’s Plan NFP presentation is not necessary for understanding the previous sections of the program. It simply serves as an additional resource your diocese can use to address this crucial subject with your engaged couples. However with being said, as one of our God’s Plan instructors correctly points out, a final NFP talk is an important component because many couples will experience a serious change of heart and perspective during their instruction in God’s Plan, and many will want to know what they can do next.
