The matrimonial covenant, by which a man and a woman establish between themselves a partnership of the whole of life and which is ordered by its nature to the good of the spouses and the procreation and education of offspring, has been raised by Christ the Lord to the dignity of a sacrament between the baptized.
[from the Catechism of the Catholic Church]

Marriage is both a vocation (calling by God) and a sacrament, for which God provides grace in both the good and difficult times of life.

There are a variety of questions about the sacrament of Marriage in the Catholic Church. Whether you are preparing for marriage, civilly married, or previously married, the Church provides answers that empower us to grow our relationship with Christ and His Church.
