After having made group exchanges and pooling, the debate led to a fundamental recommendation to return to the family that is the foundation of society by advocating for the dialogue of the bride and groom, the education of children based on morality. And the values of society, strengthen the teachings given to young people who prepare for marriage by emphasizing love. The intervention of the church and the state will come after supporting families.
Indeed, the woman who and the most victim of domestic violence has also had dignity since its creation, which is why everyone is called to fight for family dignity and society. If the man becomes aware that he is the head of the family and the woman is part of his body, he will obey and respect his wife because he can’t threaten his own body. So the family will be built by love and truth. And fruit will be peace and joy in families.
