Duszpasterstwo par kohabitujących – propozycje dla obecnej sytuacji w Polsce


Abstrakt

Kohabitacja przedmałżeńska w Polsce, mimo iż nadal nie jest tak powszechnie praktykowana i akceptowana jak w wielu krajach zachodnich, staje się bardziej atrakcyjną formą bycia w związku (intymnym) dla coraz większej liczby młodych Polaków. Ten stan rzeczy – pomimo wyraźnych zmian w podejściu do par kohabitujących zaproponowanych przez papieża Franciszka w encyklice Amoris Laetitia – nie jest w pełni zrozumiany przez Kościół katolicki w Polsce. Przygotowanie 11-stronicowego dokumentu zawierającego ogólne wytyczne do stosowania encykliki zajęły Episkopatowi Polski ponad dwa lata. Jak dotąd nie zaproponowano również propozycji programu formacyjnego (na poziomie diecezji czy metropolii), który oferowałby konkretną pomoc w przygotowaniu par kohabitujących pragnących zawrzeć sakrament małżeństwa. W tym artykule autorka koncentruje się na najnowszych badaniach empirycznych dotyczących jakości związków kohabitacyjnych (przed i po zawarciu małżeństwa), a także na nowym kierunku w postępowaniu z parami, które żyją w tzw. nieregularnych sytuacjach, wyznaczonym przez papieża Franciszka. Opierając się na tych dwóch perspektywach, przedstawia kilka sugestii, jak podchodzić do par kohabitujących w kontekście przygotowania małżeńskiego w sposób pastoralnie przyjazny, a jednocześnie skuteczny i realistyczny.
