The Catholic vision of marriage is rooted in Sacred Scripture and is expressed in the teachings and practices of the Church.When I was a kid, my mom taught me two rules of grocery shopping.I will make a suitable partner for him.” (Genesis ).This suitable helpmate was formed from the very rib of man and thus woman was “flesh of his flesh” (Genesis -23).

It is false interpretation of true marital love to believe that the feelings of being “in love” are what matters the most, and must discount all other factors, no matter how difficult or questionable. Sometimes, despite what we want and how we feel, the best thing for the other is that the relationship NOT proceed further.
