Overview

The many numbers of divorces and remarriages today seem to place in question the concept of marriage as being till death do us apart. How should we evaluate this development? Are the foundations of society being shaken to their core or does perhaps the great number of people remarrying indicate precisely that conjugality continues to be a fixed element in the human lifecycle? Scientific insights and loyality to the Christian tradition bring this multi-disciplinary theological reflection to a double movement: on the one hand, a re-appreciation of Christian marriage in terms of its evangelical roots, on the other a theological and pastoral dialogue with the several current forms that conjugality assumes upon a marriage's failure. We furthermore give special attention to the position of the children. From a faith perspective, marriage continues to be a pre-eminent path of salvation as a community of life and basis for family. La frequence actuelle des divorces et des remariages remet en question la vision d'un mariage pour toujours. Comment apprecier cette evolution? Faut-il dire qu'est ainsi atteint le fondement meme de la vie commune? Ou bien le grand nombre de remariage confirme-t-il que la conjugalite reste une composante ferme de l'existence humaine? Les recherches scientifiques et la loyaute envers la tradition chretienne orientent la reflexion theologique multidisciplinaire dans une double direction. D'une part, une redefinition du mariage chretien a partir de ses racines evangeliques. D'autre part, un dialogue theologique et pastoral avec les multiples formes actuelles de conjugalite, succedant a un echec du mariage. Dans ce contexte, nous accordons une particuliere attention a la situation des enfants. Pour le chretien, le mariage reste une exceptionnelle voie de salut, si du moins il est concu comme une communaute de vie et le fondement de la famille.
