In the next place we must consider those things which are annexed to marriage: (1) the payment of the marriage debt; (2) plurality of wives; (3) bigamy; (4) the bill of divorce; (5) illegitimate children.
Under the first head there are ten points of inquiry:
A Whether one spouse is bound to pay the marriage debt to the other?
A Whether one is sometimes bound to pay without being asked?
A Whether a wife may demand the debt during the menses?
A Whether she is bound to pay it at that time?
A Whether husband and wife are equal in this matter?
A Whether the one without the other's consent may take a vow that prohibits the payment of the debt?
A Whether it is forbidden to ask for the debt at any particular time?
A Whether it is a mortal sin to ask for it at a holy time?
A Whether it is an obligation to pay it at the time of a festival?
A Whether weddings should be forbidden at certain times?
