 Our Description

How to have a stronger, happier marriage

These pages will give you what you need to make your marriage a source of profound happiness and lasting peace:

  • Knowledge: You’ll come to understand the nature of marriage and its superiority to “living together” and other temporary unions.
  • Love: You’ll learn to distinguish love from lust, infatuation, and other common counterfeits; and you’ll discover the healing role it can play in the best — and bleakest — of marriages.
  • Faith: You’ll come to see how the sacramental marriage of Christians is the fulfillment and perfection of marriage, giving husband and wife what every spouse secretly longs for.
 

Especially today, this beautiful book — which reveals the sublime vocation of Christian marriage — is a must for anyone who is eager to live worthily this great mystery of love.

Marriage will show you:

  • The one right motive for marrying — and the many wrong ones (some often accepted by Christians)
  • The difference between the meaning of marriage and its purpose (and the dangers of confusing the two)
  • The five ways in which married love differs from other loves
  • Six counterfeit loves: what sometimes passes for love isn’t
  • The key role of will in sustaining love
  • Your unhappy marriage: it may be a clear “call” from God
  • How difficulties and suffering can deepen your marriage — and make you and your spouse better persons
  • How marriage reveals God’s love and presence
  • How Christianity intensifies married love
  • The meaning of marriage as a sacrament: its promises, its demands, and how it is a source of strength and grace.
 

“These pages are like a psalm written to celebrate the beauty, the wonder, and the mystery of marriage.” 
Columbia

“Clear . . . and utterly faithful to the truth.” 
Peter Kreeft

This item received 4 stars overall. Understanding the Means and Ends of Marriage

The mystery of marriage, natural and/or sacramental, was evident in humanity since the creation. Early in the passages of Genesis, God creates Adam and then his companion. This was beginning of natural marriage.

God's intent for marriage was plainly visible from the start:

27 And God created man to his own image: to the image of God he created him: male and female he created them. 28 And God blessed them, saying: "Increase and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it, and rule over the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the air, and all living creatures that move upon the earth." (Genesis 1)
