• Woman was given to man as an helpmeet. That complementary association is ideally portrayed in the eternal marriage of our first parents—Adam and Eve. They labored together; they had children together; they prayed together; and they taught their children the gospel together. This is the pattern God would have all righteous men and women imitate.

    "The Honored Place of Woman". Ezra Taft Benson's address at the General Conference of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, October 1981.
