The Catholic Church cares about marriage. The Second Vatican Council said, “The well-being of the individual person and of human and Christian society is intimately linked with the healthy condition of that community produced by marriage and family” (Gaudium et Spes, no. 48). Marriage is a gift to society.
The Catholic Church cares about your marriage. Every marriage witnesses to God’s faithful, fruitful, and lasting love for His people. Marriage confers a myriad of benefits on a husband and wife, and on any children that they are blessed with. The Church provides many on-the-ground helps for couples to keep their marriages strong, happy, and holy.
