What is chastity in marriage? What is the notion of Responsible Parenthood? How is the mastery of the sexual drive of spouses to be understood? Is the number of children a decision that parents themselves should make? Up to what point is one obliged to accede to the requests of the other? What circumstances justify refusing the marriage debt?
Quoting copiously from the text of the Magisterium, the authors, one of whom is a doctor with many years of pedagogical and scientific experience, pursues answers to these controversial questions and eventually guides the reader to a proper hierarchy of values.
Marriage should be seen as a path to sanctity and heroic virtue, a generous exercise of the love of God. It is a valid and reasonable exposition of the demands of self-sacrificing love, essential for personal sanctification.
