While wanting to marry, they find it hard to believe that marriages can last a lifetime. One of the benefits of a sacramental marriage in the Catholic Church is the power of God’s grace, which helps spouses keep their commitment and find happiness together.

We look at each other and smirk because we know that God has touched our stubbornness.This is grace.” God’s grace is all around because the spouses do not travel their journey alone.Experiencing God’s Grace Couples of faith are more successful and satisfied in marriage not because they have fewer problems than anyone else.What helps these couples grow and overcome obstacles is the help they find in God’s grace.The Catholic Church invites you to give meaning to your life by embracing the vocation of marriage and forming a family that is dedicated to cultivating and sharing God’s love.
