Notes
"The Article below, on Marriage, Divorce and Annulment and Re-marriage is presented by R.V. Harris, K.C., D.C.L., Chancellor of the Diocese of Nova Scotia and Deputy Prolocutor of General Synod. While not being in any way a formal document of the Church, it bears the weight of one who has acted as the Registrar of the Court for Divorce and Matrimonial Causes for Nova Scotia for eighteen years, and with a background of a wide knowledge of ecclesiastical law. It will be of distinct use to our clergy and others interested. As will be seen, the article deals with the legal and strictly ecclesiastical status of marriage and its related problems today. At a later date we may hope to publish the findings of a committee of General Synod which is considering wider aspects of the whole matter, together with recommendations of General Synod, or statement of other action which it may take". -- Foreword.
Contents: Foreword / W.W. Judd -- Marriage, Divorce, Annulment and Re-marriage in Canada / R.V. Harris.
R.V. Harris article divided into five chapters: 1. The character of the marriage relationship -- 2. Consanguinity and affinity -- 3. Remarriage after annulment of marriage -- 4. Divorce and remarriage -- 5. Admission to Holy Communion of divorced persons.

Notes
Letter. Author writes to propose a change in civil marriage legislation so that "all weddings must be performed as civil weddings. Then, if a church wants to perform a ceremony in accordance with that church's rules, that rite can be secondary. Then, when one comes to have a religious ceremony, the method of determining the form of the marriage will be that followed by the denomination. And the state will not recognize such marriage until a civil marriage is performed".

Includes bibliography: p. 75-76.
"The purpose of this study is to explore the changing nature of marriage in church and society. .... The challenges involved in discussing the blessing of same sex unions and the move by civil authorities to redefine marriage to include same gender couples necessitates an examination of our understanding of marriage in the church. This is particularly apropos given the recommendation of the St. Michael report that any discussion of blessings be discussed as analogous to marriage. Over the last fifty years significant shifts have occurred in the practice of marriage both within and outside the church. The following six sessions (1-1/2 -- 2 hours each) are an opportunity to explore these shifts and to listen to one another. New insights and/or reaffirmations of tradition will emerge as participants read and discuss together". -- Intro., p. 4.
