Some time ago, I got into a dispute about covenant marriage with my friend Stephen, who blogs at The Last Delta-T. I’m defending my position in a series of posts, both because I have problems with a subset of anti-marriage rhetoric that is sometimes used by people on the left (particularly my friends!) and because I think my views on marriage are a decent intro to some of my virtue ethics beliefs generally.
