190. V. THAT THE STATES OF LIFE WITH MEN AND WOMEN ARE OF ONE KIND BEFORE MARRIAGE AND OF ANOTHER AFTER MARRIAGE. With both men and women there are two states before marriage, one before the inclination to marriage, the other after it. The changes of both these states, and the consequent formations of minds, go on in successive order in accordance with their continual increase. But here time does not allow of any description of these, for they vary and are diverse in different subjects. Prior to marriage, the inclinations thereto in the mind are merely imaginative, and in the body they become more and more sensitive; but after marriage the states are states of conjunction and also of prolification. That these differ from the former, as realizations from intentions, is evident.
