By Rev. Cormac BurkeMarriage seems to have gone wrong for modern man. He seems uncertain about it, and even disillusioned. The growing frequency of divorce in countries where it is permitted, and the campaign for it where it is not yet legal, are proof of this unhappy situation. People, after all, can only regard the legalization of divorce as "progress" to the extent to which they feel that marriage is likely to break down—just as people tend to look for a moneyback warranty only insofar as they feel they are unlikely to be satisfied with the goods they have bought. There is no getting away from the fact: a world that is beginning to believe in divorce is beginning to disbelieve in marriage.
