Reviews - What do customers think about First Comes Love?: The Ever-Changing Face of Marriage?

A thoughtful, astute, and timely discussion of an age-old human institution.  Aug 6, 2007
Written by Episcopal priest John C. Morris, First Comes Love?: The Ever-Changing Face of Marriage is a thoughtful discussion of the history and current status of marriage from the perspective of biblical, European, and North American heritage. Chapters discussed marriage as undertaken for political purposes, marriage for procreation, four revolutionary marriage traditions from allowing slaves to marry to celibacy to equality between woman and men to the concept of lifelong equipment, what makes a marriage valid (mutual consent, consummation, and validation by an outside authority), and much more. Though written from a reverently spiritual perspective, First Comes Love? is more history and chronicle than it is religious treatise, as it astutely notes how human perspectives have changed and evolved throughout the years. The final chapter touches upon the possibility of civil unions between same-gender couples and why such an option might not necessarily be the death knell of marriage itself. "Why should a relationship that clearly manifests faithfulness, commitment, and mutuality be relegated to 'second-class' status just because it is not a legal contract? A couple may not want or need a civil union, but may earnestly desire and deserve to live in 'holy union' with the support of the religious community. Why stand in their way?" A thoughtful, astute, and timely discussion of an age-old human institution.
