Formatted abstract
Theoretical discussions by practical theologians of mutuality and justicelove in marriage and family life provide important insights and offer helpful guidance for Christians and others seeking to grow in love in their marriage and family life. However, it is contended that the question of the practical utility of some of the leading works has not been sufficiently explored. In order to make a contribution to this task, two case studies involving issues of mutuality and fairness are analyzed using the principles that leading theorists develop. It is concluded that incorporating a high level of specificity and concreteness into a theoretical model is required to assist married persons in dealing appropriately with everyday dilemmas and choices as they attempt to structure their family life around the principles of mutuality and justice-love.
