  • 1. RITUALS
  • 2. 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.

  • 6. 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.
  • 7. Do you love me honey? You’re the love of my life!
  • 8.
    • 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”
  • 9. 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).
  • 11. VALIDITY
    • 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.
