Marital Discord: Psychiatric Implications Manifested in Four Continued Service Cases in Brooklyn Catholic Charities, Nassau County Office
Marriage is as old as the human race. From the dawn of Eden, when Adam awoke to see Eve, marriage has "been "basically an agreement and contract "by which a man and a woman pledge themselves to unite in love and common union for the enrichment of their own lives and the lives of those children whose entrance into God's world they make possible. The Roman Catholic Church recognizes marriage as a uniquely human ceremony, since marriage itself is obedience to a basic human impulse for the establishment of the family, the first, the most natural, the most fundamental of human institutions. Moreover, the Church regards marriage as distinctly of God - the God of nature, the God of the Old Law, the God of Cana, the God of the sacramental system by which divine life, grace, makes more than common, higher than natural the operations of men and women. Hence, marriage is a venture with God, with destiny, and with future generations, as well as a personal venture of a man and a woman with each other.
