Those who did were conquering lust and therefore spiritually superior to those who caved to the flesh, fell in love, married and raised a family.</p> <p> That began changing about 500 years ago when Christian reformers put family on a pedestal with game-changing teachings that sexuality and spirituality aren&rsquo;t incompatible and that making a marriage work would do more to get you into heaven than staying holed up in a monastery. Historians trace that change to a monk named Martin Luther &mdash; who would later marry a former Catholic nun &mdash; and his famous &ldquo;95 Theses&rdquo; that according to tradition was nailed to a church door in Germany in October 1517. The theses complained about corruption in the church and launched a religious reformation that would forever change not just Christianity, but also social institutions like marriage.</p> <p> &lt;&lt;&lt; Read the full story in <a href="http://www.sj-r.com/news/20171030/what-would-martin-luther-think-of-todays-rates-of-divorce-and-cohabitation">The State Journal-Register</a> &gt;&gt;&gt;</p> Wed, 01 Nov 2017 11:46:17 +0000
