312.The Crowning of Marriage: A Case for Marriage Enthronement

Marriage was a royal ceremony where the man and woman wore crowns because they were royal citizens of the Kingdom of God; their marriage symbolized the future kingship reign of the Messiah on the New Earth. In the tradition of the early church, this sacred endowment view of marriage was maintained. The crowning of marriage is a part of the Eastern church’s sacramental practice to this very day and has its ultimate fulfillment in the book of Revelation.
