On the Nature of the Marriage Bond (Vinculum Conjugale)

The purpose of this essay is to consider the idea of a vinculum (or ligamen) conjugale, an idea that has an important influence on the understanding of marriage in traditional moral theology and canon law. This vinculum is usually described as metaphysical in character, and is held to be indissoluble.
