Christianity teaches that marriage unites a man and woman, permanently and exclusively, in a sexual union fulfilled by family life. How can we explain the beauty of this teaching by appealing to reason and the moral law written on the hearts of non- Christians as well as Christians? How does reinforcing this vision for all society serve the common good, especially of women, children, and the most vulnerable of our neighbors? How can we begin to respond to the concerns of same-sex attracted people, singles, the divorced, and others who often feel excluded by this vision of marriage and family? How is the Christian vision on sex and marriage truly good for individuals and communities? This presentation draws on the legal and philosophical traditions that have longed shaped our civilization to address these questions and more.
