Family and marriage are not the same. Family as an economic organization of life has existed for a long time. But now the meaning of family is marriage, fatherhood and motherhood, child-rearing. A family creates the conditions for a social participation of the spouses, it establishes a close relationship between the family and society. Family is a union of two, one love for two, and one home for two.
Your home isn’t only a place for living. It is also an atmosphere of mutual trust, mutual understanding, a world in which you live together.
A family who exists only for itself is a parody. A family is a unit of society, one of the bricks that make up society. If a family is destroyed – society loses its strength, if there are changes in society – the relationship in a family also change.
Family for a human is like a small model of society, the school of relationships with people, and at the same time a shelter where they can hide from problems, take a rest from fuss, restore their strengths.
At first you live in the family of your parents, you are the object of their care, you receive their love and learn to love and take care by yourself. Then you build your own family, you take care of your old parents, wife or husband, children. You teach your children to love. And at last, you live in the family of your children, even if you live separately your are the object of their care and love. Everything begins for the first time…
Every family is like a small state. Like in every state, in a life of each family there are ups & downs, there are wonderful moments & bad days. The important thing is to stay together, to support each other, and to share your joy and sorrow with your relatives. Besides, you should be patient as there are no perfect families as there are no perfect people. And patience and forgiveness are important for a normal and a happy life in a family.
