Changes in the civil law do not, indeedcannot, change the moral law that God has established. God expects us to uphold and
keep His commandments regardless of divergent opinions or trends in society. His law of chastity is clear: sexual relations are
proper only between a man and a woman who are legally and lawfully wedded as husband and wife. We urge you to review
and teach Church members the doctrine contained in “The Family: A Proclamation to the World.”
