Why Marriage is Controversial

I first posted this on my old blog, a couple of years ago. I’m reviving it for this week’s Summer Symposium on the Family, in preparation for the Bishop’s Synod on the Family this October.

I suspect that most people’s notions of marriage form a subset of the items on the chart. Trouble is, for two different people the overlap can exclude what one or the other finds to be most important.

I won’t belabor the point.
