    Ritual: Marriage Ritual: Marriage Presentation Transcript

    • What is a Ritual?
      • Rituals are a feature of almost all human societies, in the past and in the present .
      • A ritual is a set of actions, with a symbolic and meaningful value. It is usually arranged by a religion or by the traditions of a community.
      • A ritual may be performed on specific occasions, in public or in private.
      • The purposes of rituals are varied: religious, social, moral, spiritual, demonstration of respect or submission, and sometimes, just for the pleasure of the ritual itself.
      • Even many daily activities are considered a kind of ritual in some way; common actions like hand-shaking and saying hello may be termed rituals.
      • Engagement
      • Wedding planning
      • Save the date (Church)
      • Bridal Registry (Court of Justice)
      • Marriage license
      • Wedding invitations 
      • Bachelor and Bachelorette Party
      • Wedding Ceremony
      • Party
    • Rituals of Marriage vary according to religions and the traditions they follow. However the basis of the relationship that results out of Marriage is the same everywhere: raising a family and dedication towards the spouse. Marriage or wedding is a very unique occasion which reflects the beginning of a new relationship, a family and a new life shared with one another.
    • Do you love me honey? You’re the love of my life!
      • Marriage , also called Matrimony , is a “covenant by which a man and a woman establish between themselves a partnership for the whole life and which is ordered by its nature to the good of
      • the spouses and the
      • procreation and
      • education of children”
    • Conditions for a Sacramental Marriage
      • Within the Catholic Church, marriage is considered a Sacrament.
      • Both the man and the woman have to be baptised
      • They also have to approve the marriage by themselves.
      • Acceptance of the conditions that the church describes in her code of canon law.
      • The Church provides classes several months before marriage to help the participants inform about their consent.
      • Agreement of a lifelong union.
      • A Catholic marriage cannot be formed if one or more of the following impediments occur:
      • Antecedent and perpetual Impotence.
      • Consanguinity to the fourth collateral line (1st cousin), including legal adoption.
      • Affinity (relationship by marriage, e.g. a brother-in-law).
      • Prior bond.
      • Holy Orders.
      • Perpetual vows of chastity in a religious institute.
      • Disparity of Cult (one party not being baptised).
      • Crime (one party previously conspiring
      • to marry while still being married alleging
      • the condition of death of the spouse).
      • Non-age (at least 16 for males, 14 for
      • females).
      • Abduction (a practice in which a man
      • abducts the woman he wishes to marry).
      • A validly-contracted marriage is accompanied by divine ratification, creating an eternal union until the couple consummate. After that the marriage is completely unbreakable.
      • Consent must be a free act of will, free of coercion or severe
      • external error. If freedom is lacking, the consent is invalid.
      • An unconsummated marriage can be dissolved by the Pope.
      • Once the marriage is consummated, only a separation is possible; the marriage bond cannot be dissolved.
      • The term "divorce" has no meaning in the
      • context of Catholic marriage.
      • A marriage which did not follow the required
      • criteria is invalid, and the participants are
      • considered not to be actually married.
      • Children born from a "putative" marriage
      • are legitimate.
      • Consequently, the declaration that a marriage is null does not make the children of that marriage illegitimate.
      • An Annulment or Null is a declaration that the marriage was invalid at the time the vows were exchanged.
      • For example, a marriage would be invalid if one of the parties, at the time of marriage, did not intend to honour the vow of fidelity.
      • If the spouse did intend to be faithful at the time of
      • the marriage but later committed adultery adultery this does not invalidate t the marriage.
      • Annulment and Divorce are not t h the same: an Annulment is a f I n finding that sacramental marriage n never existed, while a Divorce is a d dissolution of marriage.
