What Every Bride and Groom Should Know

Description:

For brides and grooms or priests instructing them.

Classic Catholic training first divides marriage into three parts:

  • The nature of marriage
  • Mutual obligations of husband and wife
  • Obligations to children

Fr. Harold Buetow, the late renowned marriage instructor from the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, makes his points with expert precision, easily accessible to couples contemplating marriage, and clear enough for persons of almost any educational background. He derives an abundance of advice from Scripture, papal encyclicals, and the traditional liturgy, on topics like:

  • The nature of marriage
  • True love and the proper place for physical attraction and affection
  • The greatest blessing in married life
  • Why “this is the only institution whose blessing was not taken away by original sin”
  • Benefits conferred by the sacrament of marriage
  • The greatest influence in the life of any married person
  • Properties of marriage
  • Natural and supernatural preparations for marriage
  • Practical advice for brides regarding wedding preparation
  • The wisdom of making a general confession before marriage
  • Mutual obligations of husband and wife
  • Certain qualities which should characterize the love of husband and wife
  • Obligations to children
  • Effective formation of Christian children
