Couples shd practise chastity before marriage says Vatican

Even co-habiting couples should seek friendship, God's grace

(ANSA) - ROME, JUN 15 - Young couples set to be married should practise chastity, according to a new document from the Vatican's dicastery for the laity which sets new rules for preparing to get married.
    "The Church should never lack courage to propose the precious virtue of chastity, even though it is by now in direct contrast with common mentality," said the document.
    "It is worth helping young spouses to be able to find the time to deepen their friendship and to accept God's grace.
    "Premarital chastity certainly favours this course." The document added: "Even in the case of cohabiting couples, it is never useless to speak of the virtue of chastity". (ANSA).
