As Christian as St. Monica's Marriage

The Mystery of Christian Marriage: Felix & Elisabeth Leseur by K. V. Turley

If he did not convert (or "revert") until after his wife's death, can we really say the marriage itself was Christian? Of course her life of charity and intercession had a role to play in his conversion but that does not mean that the marriage (or their married life) itself was Christian. (Would we say that the marriage was sacramental, even if he had been baptized?)
