The Sacrament of Marriage

A God-given “oneness” only the couple will share.

The Orthodox perspective of marriage is not predicated on what is deemed socially, politically, legally, economical, and/or philosophically correct.  The Orthodox view is based entirely on the divine revelation of God’s truth, made manifest in his people, which has been handed down through the disciples and apostles.

Marriage is much more than a merely private transaction between two individuals; it is an event in which Jesus Christ Himself participates through the presence of the sacramental minister, the priest, and that of the praying community, the church.  In view of this “ecclesial” dimension of marriage, therefore, a wedding must be performed within the context of the Orthodox Church for the Church to recognize and affirm the validity and authenticity of the marriage.

Marriage calls man and woman toward a God-given “oneness” that only they will share.  Every component of their bio-psycho-social humanity is called to participate in this oneness.
