|Swedenborg's Theological Writings|
"Married Love" is the love a husband and wife share while they look to the Lord in useful service to others. This love lasts to eternity with the couple growing closer and closer. It is above every other love that humans can enjoy. But it is said to be very rare at this day. It is attained progressively as the couple approaches the Lord in the life of religion. When attained, the couple will experience inner peace, innocence, tranquility, full trust, inmost friendship and a deep desire for union on all levels of human life. Both the ideal, with practical ways to work for it, and the perversions people can enter into that destroy it, are discussed. The book, since its publication in 1768, has been both controversial due to the subject matter covered, and also inspiring. Its influence has been far reaching, running as a subtle current throughout nineteenth century literature to the present. Its pages give hope for our world where marriage between husband and wife is challenged, showing how each partner can make a different but important contribution to their union.
