An Attempt to Describe the Bonum Familiae as an Essential and Autonomous Property in the Structure of Marriage
Languages of publication
In the structure of marriage, as the Canon Law sees it, the bonum familiae is not an autonomous property. However, one may inquire whether its importance is on a par with the bonum coniugum and the bonum prolis. Without doubt, the bonum familiae is a compound of essential marital elements and properties. Although this notion does not apply, strictly speaking, to legal cases, it is present in the widely understood domain of the ecclesial legislation. After all, the Code of Canon Law as well as the legal proceedings of the Church authorities does have very paramount pastoral character. The contents of the term bonum familiae is related to the norms of the law which have strong moral and pastoral implications. Therefore, the notion, which the law recognises applies, and may be perceived as quasi-legal.
