This work faces the canonic rules of the Serbian Orthodox Church on marriage, family and sexuality. It explains the philosophical and historical bases of these ideas, but also approaches them from a modern and analytical perspective. Its major effort is to compare the traditional canonic regulations with the contemporary civil regulations relevant to family and marriage law by pointing out their differences and emphasizing some central ethical ideas that, regardless of the official secularization, still liaise between the modern and the traditional, the civil and the canonic world. Furthermore, some questions are elaborated on the possibility of engendering a balanced coordination between these two normative systems.
