I do not know if this is the right place to post this question but here goes. First I would like to say I respect the Catholic Church the most because they have the highest standard of Marriage out of all the Christian churches, but why does the church teach that marriage ends at death? How can the effects of a sacrament end? If my wife was brain dead rotting in some bed the church would say that I am still married, but because she is physically dead they tell me I should move on and basically forget about her. They say that the effects of the marriage are gone. I cannot believe this. Is it not a sacrament? All the other sacraments are eternal in there effects. And as for the effects being gone I thought one of the effects was the mutual helping of each other to grow closer to G_d. Well I was terrified my whole life until I met my wife. I trusted no one and thought that everyone was basically evil and that I could only trust in myself to be honest. Now I live my life trying to see Chr_st in everyone because of her. I am still doing this and it is her memory that drives me to love. Yes a memory! A memory in the ancient sense is an action that brings the past physically to the present, not a repeat but the same event. The Passover or the Eucharist being a prime example of a memory that was also sanctified by G_d. Yet for the Sacrament of Marriage the memory means nothing and it is not sanctified.
Another question is since when did death seperate us are we not all part of the body of Chr_st? Yes I also know what J_s_s said that we are neither given nor take in marriage in the next life but we will be like the angels. Yet this confuses me more, because that makes sense only until the resurrection, I thought I was going to get a glorified body like the one that Adam and Eve had before the fall. Did not G_d create man and woman before the fall and that was the first Marriage. Yet now Marriage is reduced to sixty years if you’re lucky and four if not. Also if death ends marriage what about Chr_st’s marriage to the church? J_s_s died does that mean that H_s Marriage is over and our salvation is a sham?
I apologize if this question sounds a little angry. I am just sick and tired of people including a priest telling me to move on with my life because I am so young. I am not depressed, I do not long for death and in fact I am actually quite happy with the few years I had. Yet I am told constantly that I will not have a full life unless I remarry. To you people I say I am married and I only want to have children with my one true wife that waits in heaven for her ever-pigheaded husband ME!
Thanks for everyone who tries to answer some of these questions.
