An understanding of marriage from the Bahá’í perspective.
When two people marry they set about creating a family unit. Each one has an idea of what a family should be. Where do these ideas come from?
Bahá’ís derive their understanding of marriage from the Bahá’í Writings, a priceless storehouse of divine guidance.
In Bahá’í Families: Perspectives, Principles, Practice Patricia Wilcox – teacher, family counsellor and mother of five – draws on the teachings of the Bahá’í Faith to provide an insight into the development of happy, strong and united families.
In particular she looks at:
- marriage as a ‘fortress for well-being’
- unity and diversity within the family
- the equality of men and women
- the family in transition
As well as
- the education of children
- consultation as a tool for progress.
