“And it shall be in that day,” saith the Lord, “that she shall call me, ‘My husband,’ and she shall call me Baal no more.

“And in that day I will make a covenant with them, with the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of the air, and with the creeping things of the earth; and I will destroy the bow, and the sword, and war out of the land; and I will make them sleep secure.

“And I will espouse thee to Me for ever; and I will espouse thee to Me in justice, and judgement, and in mercy, and in commiserations.

“And I will espouse thee to Me in faith; and thou shalt know that I am the Lord.

“And I will say to that which was not my people: ‘Thou art my people’; and they shall say: ‘Thou art my God.'”

– Hosea 2:16, 18-20, 24

God Himself, from the beginning of the world, instituted marriage to unite a couple by a bond as sacred as it is unbreakable.  Since men, having corrupted their ways, eventually forgot the excellence of this union; since it was dishonored by the divorces of pagans; since, among the Hebrews of old, it was not maintained in all its perfection, Jesus Christ re-established it to its original state; and not only did He declare this alliance one and indissoluble – as it was from its very institution – but He even elevated it to the dignity of a sacrament.
