Pope Benedict XVI has denounced the "disintegration" of family life in Europe and called for couples to make a commitment to marry and have children, not just live together, as he re-affirmed traditional Catholic family values during his second and final day in Croatia.

The Pope also voiced the Vatican's opposition to abortion at an open-air Mass at Zagreb's hippodrome, the highlight of his trip to mark the local church's national day of families.
