The Reign of Christ. Book Two. Chapter Fifteen: The Seventh Law: the Sanctification and Regulation of Marriage

How important it is for the decency and well-being of the commonwealth that matrimony be contracted and reverenced according to the will of Christ and not dissolved without a just cause! Who would not understand this? For unless that first and most sacred union of man and woman is established in a holy way, so that household discipline flourishes among the spouses according to God’s precept, how can we expect a race of good men?
