The Sacrament of Marriage, or Holy Matrimony, is a public sign that one gives oneself totally to this other person. In the Letter to the Ephesians (Eph. 5:22-23) we read that which goes back to the biblical “beginning” of marriage expressed in the words of the Book of Genesis: “… a man leaves his father and mother and clings to his wife, and the two of them become one body” (Gen 2:24).
In entering into this Sacrament, the husband and wife look to serve each other and encouraging the good in each other. In doing so, the marriage becomes a public statement about God: the loving union of husband and wife speaks of God’s values and plan for our lives.
