How does the Sacrament of Matrimony come about?

The Sacrament of Matrimony comes about through a promise made by a man and a woman before God and the Church, which is accepted and confirmed by God and consummated by the bodily union of the couple.  Because God himself forms the bond of sacramental marriage, it is binding until the death of one of the partners. [CCC 1625-1631]

The man and the woman mutually administer the sacrament of Matrimony.

A sacramental marriage has three necessary elements: (1) free consent, (2) the affirmation of a lifelong, exclusive union, and (3) openness to children. [CCC 1644-1654]
