Marriage 1


Christians see marriage as vows taken before God, and divorce is not encouraged

christians belief that they should show 4 different loves in the best way possible.

Marriage is important for Christians because:

  • it's a gift from God; it's part of God’s plan for creation that men and women should live together
  • it provides a relationship through which husband and wife support each other; this relationship is built on love and faithfulness
  • it provides a secure environment for the bringing up of children

Many churches now allow divorce but a marriage can only be ended by an annulment in the Roman Catholic Church. This means that the marriage is regarded as never having taken place for special reasons.
