Mormon Family“If we could only see a resurgence in this land of a man looking to his wife as his equal, his comfort, and his dearest friend, and a woman walking beside her husband, neither before nor behind him, as a companion, and looking to him as the light and strength of her life, we would begin to strengthen families. Children would feel secure in the embrace and love of happy parents, who would instill in them the moral and ethical standards that would guide them throughout their lives. Such marriages would be honorable and secure, and children would be nurtured and loved and reared in those values that are of the very essence of our civilization.”

(Gordon B. Hinckley, Standing for Something, New York: Three Rivers Press, 2000, p. 49.)
