The Essential Elements of a Strong Catholic Marriage

Valentine’s Day is around the corner, and it is a great opportunity to focus on your marriage – even if it is Ash Wednesday.

But for many couples looking to strengthen their marriage, they don’t know where to begin. What are the most important aspects of marriage? What elements make up a strong Catholic marriage?

Greg and Julie Alexander run The Alexander House, an apostolate that helps couples live God’s plan for marriage. They stopped by Morning Air® recently to share what the essential elements of a strong Catholic marriage are. Greg and Julie also take calls from listeners who share what has been the most important element in their own marriages.

For more on this topic, you can take the Marriage 411 eCourse – an online video course produced by The Alexander House.
