Resolution On Marriage

1. That we deplore the laxity and inadequacy of existing statutes in the several states for the regulation of marriage.

2. That in the correction of these statutes we will find one of our best safeguards against and correctives of the widespread and growing divorce evil.

3. That we especially deplore the great number of “child marriages” which have occurred during the past year under these lax and inadequate statutes.

4. That our Baptist people as citizens be urged to use their influence for the enactment of saner and more adequate laws regulating and controlling the rite of marriage.
