Natural Family Planning
Nowhere in the life of a married couple are the benefits of courting one's spouse more evident than in the practice of Natural Family Planning.

Natural Family Planning is most often associated with avoiding or delaying pregnancy.

Husbands become more attentive to their wives disposition on a daily basis.
