    This episode was particularly enjoyable for my wife and I as we drove through Carolina with our newborn daughter. I teach my 10th grade literature students what Christians believe about marriage while we read Dante together. Every year, I have a student or two who write an essay in an attempt to explain why children are not necessarily connected to marriage, but most of my students are thankful for a clear teaching on the subject. How would you good people go about persuading a modern youth that the first cause of marriage is, as the old BCP has it, “the procreation of children to be brought up in the fear and nurture of the Lord.” The real problem, of course, is an impious spirit, but I would enjoy constructive suggestions.
