Why get married? How do you know if he/she is the one? Does marriage really change you? All you need to know to achieve "till death do us part".


Why this community?

Valentine's Day is nearly upon us, and more importantly than all the chocolate and roses, it actually marks the feast day of a 3rd-century bishop and martyr, Valentine. Legend has it that Valentine secretly witnessed marriages so that husbands could avoid being sent off to war. He would then give the new spouse a paper heart to remind him of his marriage vows and God's love. So Valentine's Day is very much a celebration of married love.

We thought we'd share some articles that celebrate the unique love that God intends for a married couple. Every fortnight you will receive thoughts about love and commitment, about reasons to get married, and good questions to help you make a decision,…

This community is here for couples who are dating, recently married, or those who made their marriage vows a long time ago. All of us can grow in love.

Prayer from the community

A prayer of St. Theresa of Avila

Govern everything by your wisdom, O Lord, so that my soul may always be serving you in the way you will and not as I choose. Let me die to myself so that I may serve you; let me live to you who are life itself. Amen.
