Patron Saint of Marriage
Question from Renene on 9/12/2006:

Who is the patron saint of marriage?

Answer by Catholic Answers on 9/13/2006:

Renene--

There are any number of saints who may be invoked for that intention. Here are some examples:

Difficult Marriages
Happy Marriages
Second Marriages
Married Couples
Married Women

If you are interested in petitioning non-canonized Catholics whose causes for canonization are under consideration by the Church, I recommend the Venerables Louis and Zelie Martin, parents of St. Therese of Lisieux. Their five children who lived to adulthood all entered religious life, the youngest of whom would be known as "the greatest saint of modern times" (according to St. Pius X) and would be named only the third female Doctor of the Church in 1997 by John Paul II.
