The Tablet's take on marriage

 |  NCR Today

The Tablet, the Catholic weekly from London, has this to say about the U.S. bishops' draft pastoral letter on marriage:

The United States bishops are shortly to consider a highly conservative draft statement on marriage that appears to wish contraceptives could be un-invented. The model of family life the document seems to promote would be anathema to most women, including Catholics, for it would force them back into domesticity while men pursued their careers and earned the family’s bread. It is to be hoped that the bishops arrive at a diagnosis that is a little more realistic, and perhaps a little less male-orientated.

The Tablet
's editorial is titled "The problem with men," and the quote above is just a tiny part of the editorial's message about marriage and modern relationships. Read the full piece.
