What is the Sacrament of Marriage?
As defined in the Catechism of the Catholic Church, "Marriage is a lifelong partnership of the whole of life, of mutual and exclusive fidelity, established by mutual consent between one man and one woman, and ordered towards the good of the spouses and the procreation and education of offspring."
