Legitimacy of the Christian Family in the Current Context
The article addresses some aspects of marriage and family in the context of the secularist crisis of today. The current neo-pagan secularism, casting God out of the soul of man, left him desolate in the turmoil of an anarchic and wandering freedom. Undoubtedly, the cause of the social disorientation in which we live, the tragic existence we are struggling with and the tensions that blur life’s bright horizon is first and foremost the lack of consolidated families able to form characters. From the perspective of Christian morality, the family is monogamous and indissoluble. The Christian family fulfills the purpose of human life on earth as well as man’s existential destiny.
