The sacrament of Marriage signifies the union and love that exist between Christ and the Church. It is a faithful covenant in which a man and a woman unite in such a way that, by forming “one flesh”, they can transmit human life. As spouses and parents, men and women cooperate in a unique way in the Creator’s work.
- Mutual consent to live together as husband and wife.
- Exchange of vows.
- Mark 10:6-9
What The Church Teaches
“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.”
-United States Catholic Catechism for Adults
