"Protect the Children"



I love the talk "Protect The Children" by Elder Dallin H. Oaks. One of the questions that I would like to explore deeper in the article is, "why does the relative stability of marriage matters to children?" My response to this question is in Elder Oaks talk. "Of utmost importance to the well-being of children is whether their parents were married, the nature and duration of the marriage, and, more broadly the culture and expectations of marriage and child care where they live." Also, Elder Oaks states, "Children need the emotional and personal strength that come from being raised by two parents who are united in their marriage and their goals." And  "The most powerful teaching of children is by the example of their parents. Divorcing parents inevitably teach a negative lesson."
I want to make sure that my marriage is a partnership with not only my husband but with God. When my children can see what a good marriage should be they will have those expectations in their own future spouse and marriage.
