by Fr. John Meyendorff

This excellent study on Christian marriage is a valuable resource for anyone seeking to understand the Orthodox perspective in marriage. In it, John Meyendorff examines marriage in the Church from the contexts of Judaism and hte New Testament, the early Church and Roman law, sacrament life, and contemporary society. Specific issues discussed include: second marriages, "mixed " marriages, divorce, abortion, family planning and responsible parenthood, married clergy, celibacy, and the monastic life. Essential reading for all pastors, it is also useful for parents, newlyweds and those preparing or the sacrament of marriage.

The book includes the text of the Orthodox marriage service. 

It is impossible to understand either the New Testament doctrine on marriage, or the very consistent practice of the Orthodox Church without seeing Christian marriage in the context of the Eucharist... The very notion of marriage as a sacrament presupposed that a man is not only a being with physiological, psychological, and social functions, but that he is a citizen of God's Kingdom, i.e., that his entire life'and especially its most decisive moments'involve eternal values and God Himself.
—John Meyendorff, from the book
