'The married Christian ultimately should trust that his or her survival is guaranteed in the resurrection; the single Christain ultimately must trust in the resurrection. The married, after all, can fall back on the passage of the family name to children, and on being remembered by children. But singles mount the high wire of faith without the net of children and their memory. If singles live on, it will be because there is a resurrection. And of they are remembered, they will be remembered by the family called church.' 
Rodney Clapp in Christine A Colon & Bonnie E Field, Singled Out, p.170.
