From the Paper:

"Deborah Brock explained social regulation's coercive mechanisms, including law, towards normalization practices shaping cultural norms and notions as to what is normal and abnormal. (2003) Canada's Marriage Act displays items long influencing Canadian custom and its protective features are significant. One finds that not only has law governing matrimony shaped conventional thinking on marriage in Canada, but that the Act is a legal response to a society of before that produced the nature of the law. In effect, past convention shaped the law."
