The Watchtower, November 1, 1938, p. 323

"If in obedience to the divine command the Jonadabs or great multitude will marry and rear children after Armageddon, would it not be Scripturally proper for them to begin doing so immediately before Armageddon? And should the Jonadabs now be encouraged to marry and rear children? No, is the answer, supported by the Scriptures."

The Watchtower, November 1, 1938, p. 324

"It would therefore appear that here is no reasonable or Sriptural injunction to bring children into the world immediately before Armageddon, where we now are."

Face the Facts, 1938 ed., p. 46

"Would it be Scripturally proper for them to rear children? No, is the answer, which is supported by the Scriptures."

Children, 1941 ed., p. 366

"We can well defer our marriage until lasting peace comes to earth."

The Watchtower, April 1, 1964, p. 199

"As an example, some prohibit the people from eating meat on particular days and their priests from getting married. Besides restricting one's freedom, these laws are expressly warned against by Christian apostle Paul. In his letter to Timothy he said that 'some will fall away from the faithÉ forbidding to marry, commanding to abstain from foods which God created to be, partaken of with thanksgiving."

Awake!, November 8, 1974, p. 11

"Today there is a great crowd of people who are confident that a destruction of even greater magnitude is now imminent. The evidence is that Jesus' prophecy will shortly have a major fulfillment, upon this entire system of things. This has been a major factor in influencing many couples to decide not to have children at this time. They have chosen to remain childless so that they would be less encumbered to carry out the instructions of Jesus Christ to preach the good news of God's kingdom earth wide before the end of this systems comes. - Matt. 24:14"

The Watchtower, September 15, 1979, p. 31

"God ordained marriage (Gen. 2:18-25). So his Word speaks of those who 'will forbid marriage' as having departed 'from the faith, giving heed to deceitful spirits and doctrines of devils, speaking lies hypocritically,'É How inappropriate, then to disapprove of marriage, a lawful act in God's sight."
