Why do we get married in Church as catholics? Have you wondered or ask someone asked, if we can have sacraments outside like baptism, mass, confession or annointing of the sick, why can’t we have marriage outside or on the beach?

Fr. Mike Schmitz explains why a Christian marriage has to be in a church. With the marriage vows we aren’t just committing ourselves to our spouse. We are also saying in a very specific way that we will follow Christ. Marriage is inherently connected to Christianity, and it’s not just about us. It’s also about the church community to which we belong.
