To understand the spiritual significance of marriage and family, we must turn to God, our Creator, to learn what He had in mind in making the human race (p. 8).
Similar to the way a human family reflects God’s plan to have a family, human marriage also reflects a spiritual relationship. Human marriage is modeled after the relationship between Jesus Christ and the Church (p. 11).
Marriage is one of God’s most wonderful gifts to mankind. It is a treasure worth working on, cherishing and sustaining. His instructions are as valid today as ever (p. 23).
God intends couples to work, live and grow in harmony. Instead of waging a war of the sexes, which modern philosophies often fuel, God teaches husbands and wives to work together as a team (p. 51).
Being a good parent means putting our children’s needs ahead of our own desires. If you have children, why not give them what they want and need—a positive, encouraging home where they are taught God’s standards by both of their biological parents living together in peace? (p. 60).
It has been discovered, for example, that fathers, by their own actions, teach their sons how to be a man and how to treat women. Fathers are also most influential for daughters in helping them have self-confidence and avoid premarital sex. Mothers are generally best at teaching children to get along and respect the feelings of others (p. 62).
