Matrimony

"The matrimonial covenant, by which a man and a woman establish between themselves a partnership of the whole of life, is by its nature ordered toward the good of the spouses and the good of family; this covenant between baptized persons has been raised by Christ the Lord to the dignity of a sacrament."  (Quoted from the Cathechism of the Catholic Church)
