Marriage

"There was a wedding in Cana in Galilee,
and the mother of Jesus was there.
Jesus and his disciples were also invited to the wedding."

— John 2:1–2

According to the Catechism of the Catholic Church, "The sacrament of Matrimony signifies the union of Christ and the Church. It gives spouses the grace to love each other with the love with which Christ has loved his Church; the grace of the sacrament thus perfects the human love of the spouses, strengthens their indissoluble unity, and sanctifies them on the way to eternal life" (no. 1661).

Because of its importance, marriage normally requires six months of preparation, which is designed to help the couple prepare for the duties and responsibilities of the sacrament.
