Every marriage matters, because marriage comes from the hand of God. God brings a man and a woman together to love and support each other. Their love becomes visible in the children they bring into the world and in their acts of generous service. In Catholic teaching, the valid marriage between two baptised Christians is also a sacrament as the love between the spouses symbolises Christ’s love for the church. For more information on marriage in the Catholic Church, download the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference frequently asked questions booklet.
