Marriage is the sacred union of a man and woman that comes from the hand of God. In other words, God invented marriage, not man. By creating us male and female, God inscribed the call to marriage in our very being. This is not the truth just for Catholics but for all persons. It’s the way we're made.
Marriage in the Catholic Church is a Sacrament. Much more than just a contract, it is a covenant between a husband and wife ordered to the good of the spouses and the procreation and education of children. As such, the love between a husband and wife should point to the love God has for his people. By faithfully living their marriage covenant, couples help build the Kingdom of God by making manifest his love.
