This issue of Being One looks at marriage in the aftermath of the recent synods and Pope Francis' post-synodal exhortation, Amoris Lætitia.

The insights and experiences gathered here focus on the theme of the "wounds" that occur in married life and explore the experience of how to prevent these and how to accompany those who suffer from them. Each of these articles look at the topic from a variety of angles: those married couples who have undergone trials in their relationships; thinkers and professionals who have tried to understand and assist couples and their families undergoing tensions and break-ups; and ordained ministers who are called to bring the mercy and love of God to families and society at large.

What is presented is hopefully evidence of the positive sharing that can take place when each one brings their own special gift to the reality affecting everyone in one way or another.
