Establishment Of Advice Centres Urged SANCTITY OF MARRIAGE Rec. 1 p.m. LONDON, July 16. Addressing the Canterbury Diocesan Conference, the Archbishop of Canterbury and Primate of All England, Dr. G. F. Fisher, urged the establishment of nation-wide advice centres to help restore families broken up by war. The centres, he said, would be able to call on the clergy, doctors, psychologists and lawyers and would be financed by public money.
The Primate said the whole community must regard as a crime anything which cheapened marriage or its obligations. Long separations under unnatural conditions put great strain on men abroad and their wives at home. Even marriages firmly established were exposed to the danger of misunderstandings, suspicion and infidelities. Many hasty wartime marriages had not the chance to become established. The proposed bureaux, his Grace added, would not be confined to ser : vicemen and women. Many civilians were also subjected to influences and distractions under war conditions, which normally they would not have had to face. The advice centres would be available also to them.
