Dating in the catholic church

Sex and gender roles in the Roman Catholic Church have been the subject of both intrigue and controversy throughout the Church's history.

The cultural influence of the Catholic Church has been vast, particularly upon western society.

Christian concepts, introduced into evangelized societies worldwide by the Church, had a significant impact on established cultural views of sex and gender roles.

Human sacrifice, slavery, infanticide and polygamy practiced by cultures such as those of the Roman Empire, Europe, Latin America and parts of Africa came to an end through Church evangelization efforts.

The equality of men and women reflected in the Church teaching that the sexes are meant by divine design to be different and complementary, each having equal dignity and made in the image of God, In family life, men, not women, could have "lovers, prostitutes and concubines" and it was not rare for pagan women to be married before the age of puberty and then forced to consummate the marriage with her often much older husband.Husbands, not wives, could divorce at any time simply by telling the wife to leave.The spread of Christianity changed women's lives in many ways by requiring a man to have only one wife and keep her for life, condemning the infidelity of men as well as women and doing away with marriage of prepubescent girls.During the Middle Ages, sexual activity was regulated very differently from now.The medieval Catholic Church regulated sex and all matters relating to sex very carefully, and often imposed harsh penances to punish wrong doers.

Penances varied according to severity of the act committed, and also according to who committed the exploit.
