The Philosophy of Love: Man, Woman, and Sacred Marriage
Publication date: December 2008
Digital Book format: PDF (DRM-Free)
With a history that of "open marriages", staggering divorce rates, single parent homes, shacking up with "significant others" and "living together", and often troubled "blended families", it seems that the option of a happy, life-long marriage no longer exists in today's secularized, feminized world of radical individualism.
Yet hidden under this shabby veneer, most persons still long for something, still desire real meaning, still feel the pull towards permanence - a romantic ideal to be completed. It just won't go away. This ideal - real marriage - survives as a dream, though this joyful state cannot be found in any of the alternatives available from a secular world that's devoid of absolutes and allows any unhappy permutation.
Is there any hope?
There is! But it doesn't lie in constantly trying to redefine "marriage" (and consistently failing to make anyone's life better). It lies in returning to what Sacred Marriage was always meant to be - a sacrament of Life. That, however, can only be found if we return to being what we ourselves were always meant to be: spiritual beings that are larger than the material world and actually grasp what it means to love - and risk loving.
