Transcript of Marriage

Marriage is a
Sacred Institution Honor Marriage WOMAN DIVINE Legal State Requirements for Divorce Marriage, established by God Marriage created by the power of God
A holy PROMISE that cannot be broken Divorce Catechism: Divorce is a great offense against the natural law
"Till death do us part"
Divorce breaks that bond and breaks the covenant of salvation" (USCCB Catechism). Marrying again after Divorce "Contracting a new union, even if it is recognized by civil law, adds to the gravity of rupture: the remarried spouse is then in a situation of public and permanent adultery" (USCCB Catechism). Adultery is the case if a person remarries after they are divorced according to the Bible Legal State Requirements for Divorce If the respondent spouse has committed adultery
If the respondent spouse has committed a felony and has been sentenced to death or imprisonment in any federal, state, county or municipal correctional facility
If the respondent spouse has left the domicile for at least one year and refuses to return
If there was sexual or physical abuse and spouse seeking dissolution of marriage When a child of the matrimony is experiencing domestic violence
The spouses have been living apart without reconciliation There are more requirements that can continue a divorce, but compared to the Catholic laws of marriage, they are wrong. So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth” (Genesis 1:26-28). Marriage between man and woman Marriage can only exist between a man and a woman MAN + = Marriage between
Man & Woman Marriage between man and
woman Contd “Marriage is not a purely human institution despite the many variations it may have undergone through the centuries in different cultures, social structures, and spiritual attitudes. These differences should not cause us to forget its common and permanent characteristics. Although the dignity of this institution is not transparent everywhere with the same clarity” (USCCB 87). Gay Marriage Gay marriage can never be considered a covenant
Gay marriage cannot create what marriage between a man and a woman does, which is the creation of another human being
Gay marriage abuses the Natural Law
Good is to be done, evil should be avoided Why? Only a man and a woman can: Achieve the natural abilities that God wanted
from his creations, which means:
Creating life
Creating a covenant with each other
Completing their duties as part of the church “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth” (Genesis 1:26-28) Divorce Contd What are the requirements
of divorce
in a legal perspective Divorce Statistics Divorce Statistics Contd Statistics Contd & More Marriage My opinion Marriage is important!
A serious commitment Chastity A big part of marriage is saving yourself for it "Only the chaste man and the chaste woman are capable of true love."
- Pope John Paul II It is commonly said that 50% of all marriages in the America end in divorce http://www.divorcestatistics.org/ Gay Marriage Statistics http://www.volokh.com/files/dale-Census_Bureau_chart_on_gay_and_straight_married_couples.jpg It is a complete
natural concept The analogy behind marriage
between man and woman The woman should be pure, beautiful and holy, just like the Church The man on the other hand is considered the bridegroom of the Church; he must maintenance it and protect it, it is considered the House of Christ; just like the body of the woman "Wives, be subject to your husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the Church, his body, and is himself its Savior. As the Church is subject to Christ, so let wives also be subject in everything to their husbands. Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the Church, and gave himself up for her..." (Eph 5:22-25). Marriage a Sacred Covenant A covenant is the strongest possible pledge and agreement between two parties. Between God and the party
that is being married Marriage between man & woman Is sex before marriage really okay? No. "What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? 20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's" (1 Corinthians 6:19-20). Our bodies were not meant for
sexual immorality Sex before marriage St. Paul tells us: Sex should be between two people who have made a commitment with each other Sex is powerful! When it is outside of marriage there is no union there No matter how much you try to convince your sexual partner that you care, it cannot be completely true, there's something missing Sex in marriage Sex in marriage is fulfilling; you can share everything you have with your partner and have no compromises or worries in the end Sex in Hebrew is "Yada" which means
knowing someone personally Sex in marriage is a way of getting to recommit to each other Metaphor: "If you keep a fire and keep it in a fireplace, it brings warmth and comfort to those around it. But if you take that same fire out of the fireplace, it will destroy the whole house and those who live there" (CCEF). The ignorance surrounding us "Do not arouse or awaken love until it so desires" (Song of Solomon 2:7). "These rules are too strict"
"I'll do what I want, its my life"
"It's not a big deal"
"It just happened" its not something to play around with, its serious; it is a gift given by God that should not be taken advantage of. By Susan Hidalgo What our faith has to say about
divorce “And Pharisees came up to him and tested him by asking, ‘Is it lawful to divorce one's wife for any cause?’ He answered,
‘Have you not read that he who made them from the beginning made them male and female, and said, “For this reason a
man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one”? So they are no longer two but one. What therefore God has joined together, let not man put asunder.’ Divorce is a contract that can only be ruptured by death http://covnetpres.org/2011/01/the-christian-case-for-gay-marriage/ References Youtube.com
USCCB Catechism Online
Census Bureau "God himself is the author of marriage.” The vocation to marriage is written in the very nature of man and woman as they came from the hand of the Creator" (USCCB 87)
