Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1661: "The sacrament of Matrimony signifies the union of Christ and the Church. It gives spouses the grace to love each other with the love with which Christ has loved his Church; the grace of the sacrament thus perfects the human love of the spouses, strengthens their indissoluble unity, and sanctifies them on the way to eternal life (cf. Council of Trent: DS 1799)."
At least nine months of preparation is required (per Diocesan Synod 2017) prior to the Sacrament of Matrimony.
Individuals with prior bonds of marriage must have a Document of Freedom to Marry before a Wedding date is set.
