Orthodox wedding with “Teklil” ceremony

The holy ceremony known as the sacrament of matrimony is where the bridegroom and bride are joined together and granted divine grace, which sanctifies their union and renders it perfect and spiritual, much like the union between Christ and the church. This sacrament is very significant because it involves not only the lives of two people but also their home, community, and the kingdom of God. It is not a sacrament that should be treated casually or carried out without consideration or discrimination. There is no question that God Himself established marriage when He created the world. “God created males and females in His own image; He made them in His likeness. God said to them as He created them. Be fruitful and multiply so that the earth may be replenished. The Bible claims that God brought Eve to the man at the time of her creation. By His extending. When He responded to the Pharisees who approached Him with questions. tempting Him and asking, “Is it legal for a man to divorce his wife for any reason?” “Have you not read, that He who created them in the beginning made them male and female, and said,” was his response. For what reason must a man renounce his parents and vow to his wife, becoming one flesh in the process? Thus, they are no longer two, but rather one flesh. Therefore, man must not tear apart what God has joined together. Some church fathers believed that Christ established this sacrament during the 40 days following His resurrection when He used to appear to His disciples and discuss matters relating to the Kingdom of God.
