In Christian marriage, two people declare publically their love for one another, giving voice to their hopes and dreams for life-long love and companionship, for friendship and fidelity, for encouragement and support, for growth and challenge in their relationship with each other, with God and with creation. The couple being joined by Holy Matrimony do so knowing they do not do so alone, but with God’s help and with the support of the Christian community around them.
