Key scripture:

Genesis 2:18 NIV The Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.” The Family is God’s Idea..

Genesis 2:22-24 NIV Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib[a] he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man. The man said, “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called ‘woman,’ for she was taken out of man.” That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh.

Ephesians 5:22-30 NIV Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything. Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies He who loves his wife loves himself. After all, no one ever hated their own body, but they feed and care for their body, just as Christ does the church— for we are members of his body.

Psalm 127:1 NIV Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain.

Deuteronomy 6:7 NIV Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.
