88 God Hath Prescribed Matrimony Unto You #63

Baha'u'llah, in one of His Tablets, states that God, in establishing this

law, has made marriage a fortress for well-being and salvation.

The Synopsis and Codification, section IV.C.1.a.-o., summarizes and

synthesizes the provisions in the Kitab-i-Aqdas and Questions and Answers

concerning marriage and the conditions under which it is permitted (Q and

A 3, 13, 46, 50, 84, and 92), the law of betrothal (Q and A 43), the

payment of the dowry (Q and A 12, 26, 39, 47, 87, and 88), the procedures

to be adopted in the event of the prolonged absence of a spouse (Q and A 4

and 27), and sundry other circumstances (Q and A 12 and 47). (See also

notes 89-99.)
