PM5106: Against Celibacy

Celibacy means the deliberate refraining from any sexual or romantic relationship, including from marriage.

Maratreanism sees the union of souls as an essential part of human destiny. Although there may be times in life when a period of singleness is beneficial, Maratreanism sees a life where romantic-sexual love is permanently lacking as deficient. The most severe form of this deficiency is when romantic-sexual love is willingly rejected in obedience to the misguided that such abstinence is a good thing; it is not. As such, Maratreanism rejects the institutions of celibacy which some religions favour; celibacy is prohibited in the Maratrean religion.
