Leo XIII say in his encyclical on marriage that marriage was instituted to make people happier. Does this contradict 1 Cor. 7:40 and 7:1? And what about verse 27? Why shouldn’t they split up if people are better off and happier without marriage?
Finally, why do we get excited and congragulate people when they say they are getting married? According to Paul they are chosing or have a lesser vocation. Should sorrow accompany the anounment of a wedding?
