A commitment in any relationship is a
challenging task. But to surrender oneself to the
intimacy and the constant day-to-day demands
of married life is perhaps one of the greatest
opportunities for fulfilment and growth that a
person can face. Is it any wonder, then, that
over the centuries of Christian reflection, the
Church has come to see marriage as a sign of
the unconditional love Christ has for us, and a
sign of the unity in which we as Christians are
called to live?
