Marriage: The Union of One Woman and One Man

Have you been to a wedding and quietly wondered how long the marriage would last?  Sounds like a terrible thought on such a wonderful occasion, but these days divorce rates are high.

What makes a good marriage? What takes a couple from that special ceremony to their 25th anniversary and beyond?

Reflecting on these questions, I’m reminded of what St. Paul said to the Catholic Church in Ephesus. In Ephesians 5, Paul refers to marriage as a holy union, a living symbol between husband and wife and he compared it to the unbreakable covenant relationship between Christ and his Church.  Marriage is a covenant.

So, I encourage you to ponder this word “covenant” and pray for the grace to remain committed to your spouse until death do you part.
