What You Want Marriage About this Life Night This night is about the vocation of marriage. It will address questions like: What is marriage? Why would you want to get married? What do you get verse what do you bring? How does marriage reflect Christ and His Church? The Life Night begins with a funny game show skit on choosing a spouse. The skit will lead into a teaching that will help the teens understand the vocation of marriage and challenged to reflect and pray about what they would want their own marriage to look like. After split guys/girls small groups, the night will end by praying for married couples and the teens discernment. Goal of This Night This night will help teens understand God’s plan for marriage and the role this sacrament plays in building up the Church. It will challenge teens to think about what kind of marriage they want to have, as well as what they will bring to their marriage rather than what they will “get” from it.

Their experience of witnessing the marriages of others, whether good or bad, impacts their hopes and fears for the possibility of his or her future marriage. Marriage is a vocation. Like a vocation to the priesthood or religious life, it requires prayer and intentional preparation in order to follow God’s call and live a holy marriage. Marriage reveals divine truths about the reality of God. God is a relationship, God creates, and God loves in a sacrificial way. The Sacrament of Matrimony is intended to reveal these qualities of God and provide a daily witness of the love Christ has for His Church. End of Free Preview Thanks for reviewing this Life Night!
