Church  Wedding

Marriage is an institution ordained of God for the honor and happiness of mankind, in which one man and one woman enter into a bodily and spiritual union, pledging each to the other mutual love, honor, fidelity, forbearance, and comradeship, such as should assure an unbroken continuance of their wedlock so long as both shall live.
