Marriage has always rested on four pillars: age, number, gender, and blood -- the couple must be over the age of consent; there must be two individuals in the union; one female and one male; and, finally, not closely related. In Man and Wife, Coren posits a defence of this traditional notion of marriage -- the union of one man and one woman in a child-centred union, where the procreative norm represents the meaning of the married state. Tracing both the secular and Christian arguments for marriage, including examining the different concepts of marriage around the world, Michael Coren demonstrates the vital significance of maintaining marriage as the union of one man and one woman.
