Marriage

“In this glorious Cause the life of a married couple should resemble the life of the angels in heaven – a life full of joy and spiritual delight, a life of unity and concord, a friendship both mental and physical.  The home should be orderly and well-organized.  Their ideas and thoughts should be like the rays of the sun of truth and the radiance of the brilliant stars in the heavens.  Even as two birds they should warble melodies upon the branches of the tree of fellowship and harmony.  They should always be elated with joy and gladness and be a source of happiness to the hearts of others.  They should set an example to their fellow-men, manifest true and sincere love towards each other and educate their children in such a manner as to blazon the fame and glory of their family.”
‘Abdu’l-Bahá, Baha’i Marriage and Family Life compilation, #93
