man can enter upon an amative relation with a woman, except in 

marriage, without manifest injustice to his future wife, unless he 

allow her the same liberty; and also without a great wrong to the 

woman, and to her possible husband. 

 

It is contended that the sins of men against chastity are more venial 

than those of women, because of the liability of women to have 

children. But men are also liable to be the fathers of children, who 

are deeply wronged by the absence of paternal care. The child has its 

rights, and every child has the right to be born in honest, 

respectable wedlock, of parents able to give it a sound constitution 

and the nurture and education it requires. The child who lacks these 

conditions is grievously wronged by both father and mother. 

 

 

THE LAW OF MARRIAGE 

 

is, that a mature man and woman, with sound health, pure lives, and a 

reasonable prospect of comfortably educating a family, when drawn to 

each other by the attraction of mutual love, should chastely and 

temperately unite for offspring. The sexual relation has this chief 

and controlling purpose. The law of nature is intercourse for 

reproduction. Under the Christian law, marriage is the symbol of the 

union of Christ with the Church; husband and wife are one in the Lord; 

they are to live in marriage chastity, not in lust and uncleanness; 

and there cannot be a more hideous violation of Christian morals than 

for a husband to vent his sensuality upon a feeble wife; against her 

wishes and when she has no desire for offspring and no power to give 

them the healthy constitutions and maternal care which is their right. 

 

The law of Christian morality is very clear. It is the sexual union 

first and chiefly for its principal object. It is for the husband to 

refrain from it whenever it is not desired; whenever it would be 

hurtful to either; whenever it would be a waste of life; whenever it 

would injure mother or child, as during pregnancy and lactation. 

 

 

A MAN WHO TRULY LOVES A WOMAN 

 

must respect and reverence her, and cannot make her the victim of his 

inordinate and unbridled, selfish and sensual nature. He will be ever, 

from the first moment of joyful possession to the last of his life, 

tender, delicate, considerate, deferent, yielding to her slightest 

wishes in the domain of love, and never encroaching, never trespassing 

upon, never victimizing the wife of his bosom and the mother of his 

babes. We have romance before marriage, we want more chivalry in 

marriage. 

 

This is not the world's morality, yet it seems to one the world must 

respect it. This, high and pure Christian morality is not always 

enforced by Christian ministers, some of whom yield too much to human 

sensuality and depravity, instead of maintaining the higher law of 

Christian purity, which is but nature restored or freed from its
