THE 365 Marriage Today: Sacred Reality or Legal Fiction (3 credits)

The course uses the data of Scripture and of sacramental theology to explore the meaning of Christian marriage as an expression of God’s love relationship with his people. It also considers the psychological and social dimensions of marriage, as well as the human and moral meaning of sexuality. It encourages the development of a conjugal spirituality and addresses the question of family-planning methods. In addition, the course explains the Catholic Church’s laws regarding the "impediments" to a valid marriage and the granting of annulments, and delves, finally into the controversies surrounding divorce and remarriage.
