Why There is No “Gay Marriage” in the Catholic Church

Catholic Theology on Marriage

A legal and binding contract called “marriage” can be performed by a Notary Public or Justice of the Peace and this contract bestows certain rights and responsibilities on the parties who agree to the contract. According to the State, marriage is simply a legally binding contract. But the Church sees marriage differently, as a sacrament instituted by Christ, which may include but is not limited to the State’s definition of marriage.

According to the Catholic Church, marriage, as created by God, is a faithful, exclusive, lifelong union of a man and a woman. It is a not only a legal contract; marriage is a sacrament, a sacred bonding between humankind and God. This sacrament is intended to bond one man to one woman because the holy Scriptures define it as such.
