Official word on the Sacrament of Marriage! This Father explains it simply and exactly!
Something I have been trying to explain unsuccessfully :)
Women are not 'sex' objects! This was not the original reason for God giving Eve to Adam! It is most important to be friends first. The best of friends!
Men in marriage; We are to suffer like Christ and also replace our ladies parents as it says in the wedding ceremony.
One of the main problems I that comes to mind even in my own marriage, is that sometimes, there is a lack of intimacy. When this happens, my thoughts go to what I have said above and that it is a similar situation where we are seperated from God and likewise go astray in what should be good for us.
So I see a lack of intimacy as the big problem in marriage. Intimacy requires the time to be alone with each other and if I could relate that, it would be like prayer with all it's intimate communication with God.
This explains marriage well:
