. were useful [and furthermore] was religious belief useful for the needs of a reasonable person?" (Stillinger 896). Brontë feels this is an important question so she uses religion to frame her protagonist’s search for happiness, presenting the ideas in which God influences and doesn’t influence and how he is represented by assigning descriptive stereotypical names to help the reader better keep track of her characters.

Matrimony allows people to strengthen their bond with God and each other. The sacrament of matrimony is defined by the Catholic Church as when “a man and a woman form with each other an intimate communion of life and love.” Marriage is a way of joining man and woman to serve God together. According to the dictionary, the definition of marriage is “the state of being united to a person of the opposite sex as husband or wife in a consensual and contractual relationship recognized by law or the state of being united to a person of the same sex in a relationship like that of a traditional marriage.” This definition states that mutual consent is required; however, it overlooks the importance of dedication.

Marriage According to the Bible "Marriage must be honoured by all" (Hebrew 13:4) Marriage is seen as a gift from God, and therefore should be respected by all Christians. Marriage is a sacrament, a very important promise, between the couple and God. If a man and a woman divorce, then they are breaking the promise that they made to themselves, and to God.
