Marriage is intended by God to be a creative relationship, which allows husband and wife to love and support each other in good times and in bad. Marriage is the foundation of family life in which children may be born and nurtured. The gift of marriage brings husband and wife together in the delight and tenderness of sexual union and joyful commitment. A wedding is one of life’s great moments, a time of solemn commitment and joyful festivities.
