References (Gn 2:18) says marriage was created because God saw that it was not good for man to be alone. The marriage convent, by which a man and a woman form with each other an intimate communion of life and love, has been founded and endowed with its own special laws by the Creator. By its very nature it is ordered to the good of the couple, as well as to the generation and education of children, Christ the Lord raised marriage between the baptized to the dignity of a sacrament. (CCC 1660)
