How to Teach Your Child About Healthy Marriage

How To Teach Your Children About Healthy:


Marriage Researchers have learned many things about the positive effects of marriage on adults. For example, they live longer, healthier and wealthier lives. Kids in homes with their married biological parents generally have a higher standard of living, do better in school, have fewer behavioral problems, and are less likely to be abused when compared to kids living in a different family structure. This doesn’t mean kids from single-parent homes won’t have good lives, or that kids from married homes won’t have problems, but it is less likely to happen to kids living with parents who are in a healthy marriage. Learning to have a healthy marriage starts when children are observing their parent’s (or other relative’s) relationships.

Parents talk to their kids about all kinds of difficult topics. There are commercials about our kids’ brains on drugs, the importance of reading to our kids, and even about staying in school. But we rarely see or hear anything about one of the most important building blocks in our society: healthy marriage. Marriage is something many of us take for granted, but don’t really understand. We can give our children the tools to enjoy healthy and happy relationships.
