346. XI. THAT WITH POLYGAMISTS CONJUGIAL CHASTITY,PURITY, AND HOLINESS ARE NOT POSSIBLE. This follows from what was confirmed just above, and manifestly from what was shown in the chapter on The Chaste and the Non-Chaste, especially from the following there: That what is chaste, pure, and holy is predicated only of monogamous marriages or those of one man with one wife (no. 141); that love truly conjugial is chastity itself, and that thence all the delights of that love, even the ultimate, are chaste (nos. 143, 144). Moreover, it follows from what was adduced in the chapter on Love Truly Conjugial, such as the following: That from its origin and correspondence, love truly conjugial, which is the love of one man with one wife, is celestial, spiritual, holy, pure [and clean], above every other love (no. 64 seq.). Now because chastity, purity, and holiness have place only in love truly conjugial, it follows that they do not and cannot have place in polygamous love.
