The family is the most important social structure of any society. The choice of a lifetime marriage partner is certainly one of the most important decisions a person can make.

Every family is unique with each marriage partner bringing experiences and values from his or her own family. Unfortunately, there is no such thing as a perfect marriage, “a marriage made in heaven”. There are however principles that if followed will help each family to be that entire God intended it to be.
First, is the foundation of love, Jesus demonstrated this principle by laying down his “rights”. When he came to earth to live as a man and died on the cross. If we truly love our spouse and our children we would be willing to lay down our lives so that they might live in some emergency situation. The true test however is if we lay down our rights and demands on others in the everyday situation of life. Love is proven not just by the words we say, but also by our actions.
Second, is the foundation of respect. Family members must show respect for each other even when there is disagreement on a particular matter. This is when healthy communication plays an important role. If we offend in any way, we need to quickly ask forgiveness.

Third, is the foundation of commitment is necessary for a family to survive. There are many voices in contemporary society that tell us. If the marriage is not working just get out. But this is not the solution. God is the solution and help can be found through prayer studying God’s word and the wise counsel of those who love God.
Fourth, before you may at peace with your own family as much as it is possible. Unresolved conflicts will often be reflected later in the relationship you have with your husband/wife; children and in-laws. Ask forgiveness of offended and forgive you, no matter how deeply you have been hurt. Freedom comes when we learn to forgive others in the same way that God has forgiven us.
A longing for growing are necessary for a family. Always get informed, ask an adult in your family what they remember most about being a teenager and what was the hardest part for them? Grow dirty means you have to do a chore around the house without being asked. Grow bold and admit to something you have done or said to hurt a family member and ask their forgiveness. Get wisdom and ask a wise member for advice and listen to their counsel. Maybe they don’t live nearby. Send an e-mail or write a letter. They’ll be happy to hear from you. Always get connected and ask a family member about their day. What was the best part? What didn’t go so well or was really thought.

Ideal family is not the issue today but for you to have a family who definitely grow of having those aspects can make your family whole and live strong.
