298. III. THAT BEFORE SHE CONSENTS, IT BEHOOVES THE WOMAN TO CONSULT HER PARENTS OR THOSE IN THE PLACE OF PARENTS, AND THEN TO DELIBERATE WITH HERSELF. That the parents should be consulted is because they deliberate and counsel from judgment, knowledge, and love. From judgment, because they are more advanced in age, and age improves the judgment and gives clear sight in regard to suitableness and incompatibility. From knowledge both of the suitor and of their daughter. Knowledge concerning the suitor they gather, and knowledge concerning their daughter they already have. It is therefore with a joint sight that they form their conclusion as to each of them. From love, because to consult the welfare of their daughter and to provide a home for her is also to consult their own welfare and to provide for themselves.
