In Their Own Words

"We learned that although they are religious and personal, marriage and family issues are often a lot like driving an automobile, meaning that you regulate them because there are big material, psychological, and health issues at stake. Philosophy and law have been concerned about these issues because if you let them fall apart big social issues emerge. "
