The Catechism teaches that “Sacred Scripture begins with the creation of man and woman in the image and likeness of God and concludes with a vision of ‘the wedding feast of the Lamb.’” (1602) “God Himself is the author of marriage. . .The vocation to marriage is written in the very nature of man and woman as [we] came from the hand of the Creator. Marriage is not a purely human institution, despite the many variations it may have undergone. . .these differences should not cause us to forget its common and permanent characteristics. Although the dignity of this institution is not transparent everywhere with the same clarity, some sense of the greatness of the matrimonial union exists in all cultures.” (1603)
