As Jesus is the cornerstone upon which the Church is built, so are his teachings the unifying cornerstone of Christian doctrine.

1st Principle of Family Life

Faithfulness makes marriages last. Temptation is everywhere, before and after marriage. A key to marital faithfulness is resisting temptation by avoiding dangerous situations. A foolish generation has been so focused on money, education and equality that it has placed marriages in lethal danger. Faithfulness is a habit we develop before we marry, by saving ourselves for one person alone. Loyalty beforehand makes it is easier to continue during marriage. The Ten Commandments summarize this with the rule “Thou shalt not commit adultery” (Exodus 20; Deuteronomy 5). By remaining virgins before marriage, young men and women are developing their faithfulness to a future spouse. By remaining true after marriage, men and women are protecting the integrity of the basic building block of society, the family.
