Love & Marriage: Luther Style

Today I stumbled across a really interesting article on Martin Luther and his impact on the institution of marriage. You can check it out here.

A quote from Luther I thought funny: "If I can manage it, before I die I will still marry my Katie to spite the devil."

And a quote from a Luther scholar I really like: "Luther's faith was simple enough to trust that after a conscientious day's labor, a Christian father could come home and eat his sausage, drink his beer, play his flute, sing with his children, and make love to his wife — all to the glory of God!"

There is also another interesting article I found on marriage called, "Get Married, Young Man."
