Marriage is a covenant


Undoubtedly the substance of the sacrament is of this bond, so that when man and woman have been joined in marriage they must continue inseparably as long as they live… For this is preserved in the case of Christ and the Church, so that, as a living one with a living one, there is no divorce, no separation forever

– St. Augustine (Marriage and Concupiscence 1:10:11 [A.D. 419]).
