“Marriage cannot and will not be carried through as a purely private undertaking. Even the smallest cottage of the happiest of lovers cannot be habitable inside unless it has at least a door and a few windows opening outwards. At some point it finds itself implicated in affinities and friendships as part of the Christian and civil community”
– Karl Barth, Church Dogmatics, Volume 3, Part 4 (quoted in Jason Garoncy, “Barth on marriage (some notes from CD III/4)”, Per∙Crucem∙ad∙Lucem, 15 July 2011)
