Marriage - the Second Attack

Marriage - the Second Attack

Marriage is in trouble, it is under attack and it has been under attack for decades. Many believe that homosexual marriage is when the attack started. But as Conservatives we should look at the long view of history. In many places the first concrete attack on marriage was the decriminalization of adultery. While it wasn’t used much it did convey to all that society, both formally and informally disapproved of such behaviour. That the law, society and marriage were in allegiance with one another. It also gave moral support to marriage as an institution and it gave comfort to those who had been wronged. 

Now all of that is gone.
