Abstract: Recollecting the elementary truth that matrimony is an institution established by the Creator so that humankind can implement His purpose of love and that the triune God reveals Himself in history and enters a salutary Covenant with His people making the matrimonial communio personarum a living image, which reflects His own image, might seem a truism. We aim to demonstrate in this study, however, the fact that some regulari- ty deserves a moment’s thought. The clarity/transparency of this image constitutes a continuous challenge for the pastoral activity of the Church, in which an auxiliary, although, significant role is played by theological sciences. An uninterrupted dialogue with the pluralistic world of thought and ideas concerning the search for a fuller truth about man and subsequently, looking for an appropriate communication language for this truth is their domain. The fact the Second Vatican Council recommends such a language, which optimally harmonizes the vetera et nova of the Catholic matrimonial doctrine, is corroborated by the unmatched teacher of personalism Saint John Paul II when he proclaims: Within the perspective of authentic personalism, the teaching of the Church confirms the possibility of establishing matrimony as an indissoluble relationship (vinculum indissolubile) between spouses, through its essence directed towards the good of the very spouses and children (Address to the Roman Rota, 1997; Dignitas connubii Instruction, 2005). It is exactly this affirmation of the personal‑centric optics that currently opens up new possibilities: firstly, an appropriate look at the title canonical paradigm of indissolubility through the prisms of a properly understood (on the ground of anthropological realism) relationship between nature and culture, secondly, a convincing realization of the postulate of inspiring/evangelizing the legal culture, in which the Church exists and functions.
