Contents divided into eight questions and answers: What are the origins of marriage ? -- In what ways does marriage express God's will ? -- Is marriage, then unrelated to the working out of the divine will, and is it only a remote and imperfect model of the divine union which is our goal ? -- Is divorce permissible ? Most people have interpreted Jesus' statements on divorce as condemning it entirely -- Is the remarriage of a divorced person a genuinely Christian freedom which we are now making available, or is it an example of giving in to popular worldly trends ? -- What about "living together" ? Can the church accept this modern phenomenon, which seems to be in flagrant opposition to the church's view of marriage ? -- Does the church have a double standard ? -- Are there then any standards ?
