Matrimony and Holy Orders are the two sacraments which not only serve the individual in reaching this goal but are there for the benefit of the community.
Matrimony is there for the mutual help of the spouses and the increase of the people of God.
It is therefore good but may not be put before the state of virginity.
The sacrament of matrimony consist of the marriage contract, so that for Christians the contract and the sacrament are inseparable.
Devotion to his twofold end is the way of salvation for married couples, a way sanctified by the sacrament.
