Why is marriage a
The Sacrament of Marriage is a Sacrament celebrated between husband and wife. As a Sacrament of Vocation the union of husband and wife and the formation of their family reveals a unique and exclusive path by which Christ accompanies the recipients: through the presence of their spouse and family.
The Sacrament may be entered into by any male and female who are free to marry according to the Catholic Church.
Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.
Love never fails .
1 Corinthians 13:4-8a
