The God described in the Judeo-Christian tradition sees marriage as a union between man and women marked by fidelity, charity, and love. Drawing from Genesis, John, 1 Corinthians, and other passages, the Judeo-Christian biblical texts speak of marriage as having a sacramental character, wherein the union is ordained and blessed by grace. In the Judeo-Christian tradition, the exchange of marital vows is a community event. Interestingly, New Testament texts sometimes speak of the Christian Church as the “bride of Christ.” Marriage, as intended by God, is self-giving and enriched by procreation.
