Walther, 1906. Chapter 19, “The Wedding and Marriage”

Chapter 19, “The Wedding and Marriage” pp. 152-154

The pastor’s duty in a wedding is to consecrate a marriage which is not forbidden by civil or divine law, to carry it out correctly, and to guard against later dissolution of the marriage. Luther viewed marriage primarily as a civil matter. Yet since marriage involves people with consciences it does have a relation to the Church.
