THE SACRAMENT OF MATRIMONY
CCC 1601 "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."
Sacred Scripture begins with the creation and union of man and woman (—Gen 1:27) and ends with “the wedding feast of the Lamb” (—Rev 19:7, 9). Scripture often refers to marriage, its origin and purpose, the meaning God gave to it, and its renewal in the covenant made by Jesus with his Church.
Marriage Preparation is required for men and women prior to receiving the Sacrament of Matrimony. Read about the steps of getting married here and then register for marriage preparation here. And read more about the Church's Teaching On Marriage, the family, and the person here.
