The matrimonial covenant, by which a man and a woman establish between themselves a partnership of the whole of life,is by its nature ordered toward the good of the spouses and the procreation and education of offspring; this covenant between baptized persons has been raised by Christ the Lord to the dignity of a sacrament. (Catechism of the Catholic Church, n. 1601)
