Marriage

Marriage is the sacrament by which couples promise perpetual, exclusive, and fruitful fidelity to each other for the rest of their lives.

.

Perpetual:  the promise to be married until death

Exclusive: the promise to be married to one person and no other

Fruitful: the promise to be open to having children

.

By making these promises in the presence of a priest, a bond is formed between the couple that unites them for the rest of their lives.

.

The sacrament of marriage must take place within the Catholic Church if at least one of the partners is a baptized Catholic. This means that a mixed marriage between a Catholic and non-Catholic must take place within the Catholic Church.
