relation. There should be a pure motive and the fixed intention of 

making the relation what it ought to be to husband, wife, and 

children. There should be a reasonable assurance of the power to 

provide for a family. There should be that amount of health, that 

freedom from bodily and mental disease, that physical and moral 

constitution which will give a reasonable prospect of children whose 

lives will be a blessing to themselves and to society. 

 

When there is deformity of body, or an unhappy peculiarity of temper 

or mind liable to be inherited, people should not marry, or if they 

live together, should resign the uses of marriage. People should 

conscientiously refrain from propagating hereditary diseases. Persons 

near of kin are wisely forbidden to marry, for there is in such cases 

the liability of imperfect generation--the production of blind, deaf, 

idiotic or insane offspring. 

 

 

SHOULD MARRIAGE BE FOR LIFE? 

 

As a rule, undoubtedly. Every real, proper, true marriage must be. It 

takes a lifetime for a husband and wife to make a home and rear and 

educate and provide for a family of children. But what if people make 

mistakes and find that they are not suitably married? These are 

mistakes very difficult to remedy. If a man, after deliberately making 

his choice of a woman, ceases to love her, how can he honorably 

withdraw from his relation to her, and enter upon another, 

 

 

WHEN SHE STILL LOVES HIM, 

 

and is ready to fulfill her part of the contract? Laws cannot very 

well provide for mistakes. If the distaste for each other be mutual, 

and both parties desire to separate, a separation may of course be 

permitted; but it is a serious question whether two such persons can 

go into the world and find new partners, with justice to the rest. The 

law which permits of no divorce certainly bears hard upon individual 

cases; but if it leads to greater seriousness and care in forming such 

relations, it may be, on the whole, the best thing for society that it 

should be strictly observed.
