Summary
The governor severely criticizes the custom which seems prevalent among the natives, of couples who have been duly married in the catholic church, but who live apart, the wife residing with parents or relatives, and the Husband off somewhere living in a separate house; the two spouses having little to do with each other. The governor thinks that only evil consequences can come of such an arrangement. He asks that the priests take measures to See that the couples they marry, live together. And he issues an order to be published by the Alcaldes mayores, through interpreters, that the penalty for spouses living apart shall be fifty lashes and two months in prison, for the first infraction, and for repeat offenders, four years of forced labor. (Lloyd Kendall) (1980)
