Should Priests Marry?

Did God intend for men to remain single for any reason? Is there a cause in society (past or present) that a man must refrain from marriage? Is this unnatural? Remaining single as a minister, is this biblical or just a Catholic thing?

The former pope -the German intellectual Joseph Ratzinger- who has given himself the title of "emeritus" pope, Benedict XVI, a learned theologian who "ruffled feathers in April 2019, when in a long text he blamed paedophilia within the church on the 1960s sexual revolution and an absence of God in modern society".

The current Pope seems to be leaning toward "married priests". Who is right, Joseph Ratzinger or Pope Francis? Wouldn't married priests help stem the century old, paedophilia problem in the RCC? CM
