"Have you not read that from the beginning the Creator
‘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 flesh’?" Mt 19: 4-6
"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 #1601
