Marriage, Its ethics


From Dean Carter's Foreword to Marriage: Its Ethic and Religion.

'They got married and lived happily ever after' is the misguided old stage direction that marriage ends all. Marriage begins all. Principal Peter Taylor Forsyth evidently stood for a markedly different view of marriage than he perceived in contemporary literature. What was his view, and does it provide any guidance or help in our personal life and pastoral ministry? ... Forsyth believed [there] to be three critical threats to true marriage, namely, divorce, 'leasehold' marriages, and the danger of literature ... We must [also] acknowledge his genuine pastoral care, his extraordinary and timely concern for women and his urgent call to the Church to return to its true marriage ethic.
