Marriage

 

What is the Sacrament of Marriage?

A marriage between two Christians has a supernatural element as well as a natural one. While few Christians outside of the Catholic and Orthodox Churches regard marriage as a Sacrament, the Catholic Church insists that marriage between any two baptized Christians, as long as it is entered into with the intention to contract a true marriage, is a Sacrament. 

‘God disposed man and woman for each other so that they might be “no longer two but one” (Matthew 19:6)  In this way they are to live in love, be fruitful and thus become a sign of God Himself, who is nothing but overflowing love’   – Catechism of the Catholic Church – Reference [1601-1605]
