Marriage is a human reality and a saving mystery.  It is fullest meaning comes from the Christian faith and it is governed by civil law.  Different cultures and ages have defined and celebrated it in various ways.  The Catholic Tradition has defined it as a covenant by which a man and a woman establish between themselves a partnership of the whole of life.  In the Catholic Church, marriage is one of our seven sacraments.  It is an efficacious sign of grace, instituted by Christ and entrusted to the Church by which divine life is shared with us.
