From the Introduction
This paper is primarily aimed at those within the New Church in Australia, or anyone else who may have questions regarding what the doctrines of the New Church say concerning the origin and meaning of marriage. To that end the perspective offered is a doctrinal one and, while it may touch on some of the arguments that frame the current debate within the secular space, it is not primarily concerned with either refuting or supporting those arguments directly. The question being addressed here is simply:
What does New Church Doctrine have to say regarding marriage and what rationale does it offer in support of what it says?
