Matrimony is the marriage contract between Christians raised by Christ to the dignity of a sacrament. In the Sacrament of Matrimony, a man and a woman pledge themselves to one another in an unbreakable alliance of total mutual self-giving. It is a total union of love, a love that is not a passing emotion or temporary infatuation, but a responsible and free decision to bind oneself completely, "in good times and in bad," to one's partner. Such love is proclaimed before the eyes society. It is unconditional. To be capable of such love calls for careful preparation from early childhood to wedding day. It requires the constant support of the church community throughout its development.
