Christian marriage is a covenantal relationship in which two people enter into a life-long union, make their vows before God and the Church, receive the grace and blessing of God to help them fulfill their vows. In the Episcopal Church it is required that at least one of the parties must be a baptized Christian, that the ceremony be attested by at least two witnesses, and that the marriage conform to the laws of the State of Connecticut and the canons (laws) of this Church. Pre-marital counseling with the clergy is a requirement.
