Marriage in the Catholic Church
Congratulations on your engagement and on your decision to create a sacramental marriage in the Catholic Church! Marriage is not only a celebration of love between a man and a woman, but also a special sign of God’s presence in humanity in the creative expression of love, in the union of the couple, in times of happiness and difficulty. According to the Cannon Law, “The matrimonial covenant, by which a man and a woman establish between themselves a partnership of the whole of life, is by its nature ordered toward the good of the spouses and the procreation and education of offspring; this covenant between baptized persons has been raised by Christ the Lord to the dignity of a sacrament”.
