Elsewhere on my site one can find a study of mine concerning the origin, use and effects of the term remedium concupiscentiae, formerly designated as a 'secondary' end of marriage. The two articles that follow here have been condensed by Faith Magazine from portions of that study. In publication, considerations of space made it necessary to omit certain passages or references that fill in the argument. Those interested can refer to the full study: "A Postscript to the remedium concupiscentiae" (The Thomist 70 (2006) 481-536) at node/934 on the site.
