Short answer questions by Jordan Q – Outline the marriage ceremony making specific reference to variants of Christianity. [4 marks] Marriage is a loving, lifelong relationship in which two people are committed to each other. The marriage ceremony or wedding is the process of publicly acknowledging the commitment the husband and wife have made to this relationship. The different denominations all have different structures for the marriage ceremony. Catholicism follows the procedure of; greeting, opening prayer, liturgy of the word, homily, rite of marriage, prayers of intercession, nuptial blessing, lord’s prayer, final blessing. The Catholic Nuptial ceremony is said in the church and is very traditional. It is seen as one of the seven commandments. The Anglican denomination is not a sacrament and can be said anywhere because of the belief that God is everywhere. It follows a different procedure which is; rite of marriage, prayers, scripture, our Father, prayers of blessing. For high Anglicans it is classified as a sacrament. For the Orthodox denomination it is very strict and traditional which includes the use of several symbols. It follows a different procedure again which is: priest leads couple around the altar three times, place crowns on heads, hold the Bible in their hands to symbolize God always being in their relationship and there is not any vows. Only the first marriage is classified as a sacrament.
