Overview

The essays in this volume offer a look at the challenges facing married Catholics today and also present resources from Christian tradition that can help couples and families forge a long and satisfying relationship with one another, with children, and with the communities of the Church and society. This examination provides an exploration of the distinctively Catholic approach to marriage—that is, as rooted in a particular way of thinking about God, human love, and the community—as well as an analysis of how married people negotiate life in the 21st century United States. Written by eminent scholars who are themselves married Catholics, striving to articulate a Catholic approach to marriage, this reference also takes a close look at specific populations within the church that merit particular attention in the marriage ministry, including interfaith marriages and marriages in various subcultures.
