Marriage, Families & Spirituality

Current issue: vol. 25/2 (2019)

Marriage, Families & Spirituality

 

Special Theme Issue

CHILDREN IN SAME-SEX HOUSEHOLDS


 

Families composed of openly gay or lesbian couples raising children are a relatively new reality, with the first instances happening only in the 1980s. Their number has increased from year to year.

 

Today, in western societies at least, they receive wide acceptance and are becoming common in the public imagination of film, television, and literature.

 

True to its mission, our journal continues its interdisciplinary reflection on all types of family life. In this new issue, we focus on the theme of “Children in Same-Sex Households”.

 

We address this topic from a theological and scholarly perspective, but also in the context of a pastoral discernment filled with merciful love.
