§. 1. Of the heads of those common-mutuall duties.
IN the first part of this Treatise concerning Man and Wife, hath beene declared, who are so to be accounted: in this se∣cond part their common-mutuall duties are to be laid forth. These are either xabsolutely necessary for the being and abiding of mariage: or y needfull and requisite for the well being and well abiding of it, that is, for the good estate of mariage, and for a commendable, and comfortable liuing together.
|There are two kindes of the former,||1. Matrimoniall Vnity.|
|2. Matrimoniall Chastity.|
The latter also may be drawne to two heads: for they are either such as the maried couple are mutually to performe each to other: or such as both of them are ioyntly to performe to others.
|Those mutuall duties are||1. A louing affection of one to another.|
|2. A prouident care of one for another.|
Vnder that prouident care I comprise both the Meanes whereby it may be the better effected (which is Cohabitation) and the Matter wherein it consisteth:
|And this respecteth,||1. The Soule,||3. The Good-name||of each other.|
|2. The Body,||4. The Goods|
The ioynt duties which are to be performed to others,
|respect||1. Those who are in the house.|
|2. Those who are out of the house.|
|They who are in the house are||1. Members of the familie.|
|2. Guests which come to the familie.|
Many more particulars are comprised vnder these generall heads, which I purpose distinctly to deliuer, as I come to them in their seuerall proper places.
