On Christian Marriage

St Nektary of OptinaSt. Nektary of Optina 1858-1928

Happiness in married life is granted only to those who fulfill the Divine Commandments and treat marriage as a Mystery of the Christian Church. (Living Without Hypocrisy: Spiritual Counsels of the Holy Elders of Optina, p. 156)
