14. Gay Marriage: a The Church opposes gay marriage because A- marriage is sacred and must be kept as a union between man and woman. and B- marriage of two homosexual persons is not procreative b Mr. Fitz told us: Marriage is to help both sexes help to know what it feels to be like a man/woman. The church says that legalizing gay marriage is not the right way to grant civil rights to gays.
15. Cohabitation: a 4 criteria used to define cohabitation: a relationship of man and woman, who are sexually active, share a household, and are not married. b The main reason why cohabitation is sinful: b Because the couple is not married. c Couples justify cohabitation by saying: c “it’s more convenient”, “We’re trying to save money for the wedding, so living together is more economical”, “Because of the high divorce rate, we want to see if things work out first”, “We need to know one another first. Later we’ll start having kids”, and “The Church is just outdated and out of touch with its thinking in this matter. Birth control made those old rules obsolete.” d A summary of the bishops response: d The circumstances aren’t all that important. What matters is that cohabitation leads to the cutting short of a relationship just to get to the climax and doesn’t help build a long standing trust. e What is the sin of scandal, and how can cohabitation be that sin? e The sin of scandal is an action or event regarded as morally wrong that is visible to the general public. Cohabitation can be that sin because it not only affects the couple who cohabitates but also others around them, such as small children who are morally immature and are easily impressioned upon. If they see this happening they believe it is ok because other people are doing it. This is a truth they can hold with them their entire lives if not corrected. f Summary of the church’s argument that cohabitation is a bad preparation for marriage: f Cohabitation is a bad preparation for marriage because it violates God’s commandments and the law of the church. Also, living together before marriage increases the chances of divorce and it doesn’t foster a good, healthy relationship because it will appear to be only about sexual gratification, and not about a personal relationship and committed love. g The four reasons why couples may have to abstain from sexual intercourse for an extended period of time: g illness, military service, business travel, or for the good of the spouse (ie. after pregnancy) h Why do the Bishops take the time to point out these realities to unmarried couples? h The point the bishops are trying to make is that a couple should practice abstinence before marriage in preparation for the times in marriage where they will be separated and intercourse will be impossible.
