|It is evident that the definition of marriage in a faith context needs to evolve and reflect the reality that most marriages have already begun well before the sacrament, and that many end in divorce, and that marriage is not always forever . Formation of the married life is a continuous effort and should be given the same rigour and support as that given to clergy. Retreats, sabbaticals, conferences should all be offered annually to the married. Less effort should be extended to the pre-married, and more on the married.
It’s all very predictable. Yawn.
