A valuable insight about applying spiritual principles to the practical realities of the marital relationship with a foreword by Elizabeth Marquardt, author of Between Two Worlds: The Inner Lives of Children of Divorce. Redefining marriage as the basic building block for world peace and unity, the book explores issues such as dating, how to prepare for marriage, the purpose of marriage, conflict resolution, interracial marriage, raising children, divorce, and more. By taking an in-depth look at what the Bahai writings say about marriage, the book examines the institution in light of Gods purpose for humanity and provides guidance for building spiritually founded marital unions. Coming at a time when modern social conditions are forcing a reexamination of the institution of marriage, the book offers sound advice, encouragement, and tremendous hope for the future.
