429. V. THAT HENCE SCORTATORY LOVE IS THE OPPOSITE TO CONJUGIAL LOVE AS HELL IS THE OPPOSITE TO HEAVEN. All who are in hell are in the connubial connection of evil and falsity, and all who are in heaven are in the marriage of good and truth; and since, as just said (nos. 427, 428), the connubial connection of evil and falsity is adultery, hell also is adultery. Thence it is that all there, are in the lust, lasciviousness, and shamelessness of scortatory love, and flee the chaste and modest things of conjugial love in horror (see above, no. 425). From this it can be seen that these two loves, the scortatory and the conjugial, are opposed to each other as hell is opposed to heaven and heaven to hell.
