Marriage: A Fortress for Well-Being offers valuable insights for every couple, whether married or in preparation for marriage, to apply spiritual principles to everyday needs. Redefining marriage as the basic building block for world peace and unity, the book explores issues such as dating, how to prepare for marriage, raising children, divorce, and more. By taking an in-depth look at what the Baha’i writings say about marriage, the book examines the institution in light of God’s 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, encouragements, and temendous hope for the future.
I encourage every couple to read it before their wedding.
This new edition has a foreword by Elizabeth Marquardt, author of Between Two Worlds: The Inner Lives of Children of Divorce and an affiliate scholar at the Institute for American Values.
