You say he should as if there would be some compelling reason to do so. The canons of the local council held in Trullo in Constantinople were never considered universal, except by those eastern schismatics who added these to the decrees of the Second and Third Councils of Constantinople.

What actual benefit could be gained in the Latin tradition by mixing in aspects of Eastern tradition?

Don't read any personal attack into this, I'm seriously interested.

I have heard Peter was married,but left his wife to pursue the ministry.With her permission I assume.That can still be done if both spouses agree,and become Religious.Not to remarry,but to live in Holy Chastity.

Bernard, you have heard all kinds of things. But the only evidence that exists that Peter was married was that he had a mother-in-law. Nothing in any document that exists or in tradition alludes to any thing else.

That he left his wife is just a pipe dream. If you think about it, Christ would never have allowed a married man to abandon his wife.

St. Peter, Prince of the Apostles

Bethsaida

St. Peter's trueand original name was Simon, sometimes occurring in the form Symeon. (Acts 15:14;2 Peter 1:1). He was the son of Jona (Johannes) and was born inBethsaida (John 1:42, 44), a town onLake Genesareth, the position of which cannot be established withcertainty, although it is usually sought at the northern end of the lake. TheApostle Andrew was his brother, and theApostle Philip came from the same town.

Capharnaum

Simon settled in Capharnaum, where he was living with his mother-in-law in his own house (Matthew 8:14; Luke 4:38) at the beginning of Christ'spublic ministry (about A.D. 26-28). Simon was thus married, and, according to Clement of Alexandria (Stromata, III, vi, ed. Dindorf, II, 276), had children. The same writer relates the tradition that Peter's wife suffered martyrdom (ibid., VII, xi ed. cit., III, 306).
