Be it resolved by the Meese Matrimonial
Association. In annual reunion assembled:
That we reaffirm the principles and alms)
of this organization as heretofore by reso
That we deplore the alarming Increase in
divorces as compared with marriages la
our community, and that we view with dis
gust the evident insincerity with which
many of our young men and women enter
into their marriage vows.
That we assert that marriage is a di

humanity. That marriage is not a failure,
and he who declares the contrary questions
the rectitude of the creaUve scheme of Al
That we believe the strength and safely
of the Republic are dependent upon the.
morals of the people, and that no naUon

We therefore Invoke the aid of aU patriot

divorce laws and the lack of solemnity
with which the marriage state is invested.
