The Knot That Can’t Be Tied: Secular, Natural and Sacramental Marriage - Mark Lowery

Man’s sexual energies are of extraordinary power and complexity. Is this energy something we can use however we wish, or is there some objective standard to which this energy should be conformed? The Western tradition, like many other traditions, has consistently held that there is such an objective standard, and it is the reality called “marriage.”  Read more...

The Latest War Against Marriage - Maggie Gallagher

Today thanks to a myriad of sociological studies showing that men, women, and children are better off, not worse off, in committed two-parent families, the campaign against marriage has metamorphosed once again.

The Moral Birds and the Bees - Roger Scruton

In the England of the Forties, when my parents were courting, terms like "moral," "decent," and "clean living" applied primarily to sexual behavior.
