purity, truth, and honor of the beloved, there can be no jealousy, no 

desire for selfish absorption, no fear of deprivation of any right. 

There is no reason why a husband or a wife should limit the range of 

pure and spiritual affection to near relatives. 

 

 

THE MAN WHO CAN LOVE 

 

a sister as sisters are often loved, may love in the same way, or as 

purely, any woman who might be his sister. As men and women learn to 

purify their lives, the world will grow more tolerant and love will 

become more universal. The tender and fervent exhortations to mutual 

love to be found in the Gospels and Epistles of the New Testament are 

now almost without a meaning. But they had a meaning to those to whom 

they were addressed, and when we are better Christians, and bring our 

lives to the purity of Christian morality, they will have a meaning to 

us and we shall learn that, in a sense we have not dreamed of, God is 

Love. 

 

 

IN THE HUMAN RACE ALL CIRCUMSTANCES POINT TO MONOGAMY 

 

as the lawful or natural condition. Males and females are born in 

almost equal numbers. If there are two or three per cent. more of 

males than females, the risks of life with males soon make the number 

even. Therefore, as a rule, no man can have more than one wife without 

robbing his neighbor. 

 

_Polygamy_ is therefore a manifest injustice, and may become the most 

grievous of all monopolies. 

 

Children are the most helpless of all young creatures and require the 

care of parents for the longest period. The care of a husband for his 

wife, and of a father for his child, is an evident necessity. The 

proper care and education of a single child should extend over at 

least fifteen years, and that of a family may reach to thirty years, 

or throughout the greatest part of an ordinary life. During all 

periods of pregnancy, childbearing, nursing, and the education and 

care of a family, every woman has a right to the sympathy, sustaining 

love, and constant aid of her husband. No man has a right to desert or 

leave helpless, or even dependent upon others, except in extraordinary 

cases, the mother of his children. 

 

Marriage, like celibacy, should be a matter of vocation. 

 

 

THE SPECIAL OBJECT OF MARRIAGE 

 

is to have children; the co-operating motive is that two persons drawn 

to each other by a mutual affection may live helpfully and happily 

together. A selfish marriage, for its merely animal gratifications--a 

marriage in which strength, health, usefulness, often life itself, are 

sacrificed to sensuality and lust--is a desecration of a holy 

institution, and somewhat worse in its consequences than promiscuous 

profligacy, for the consequences of that may not fall upon one's 

children and posterity. 

 

There are many persons who have no right to marry. There should be a 

kind and amount of love that will justify and sanctify such a
