For Your Marriage is an initiative of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and is designed to provide resources for Catholic couples who are married or engaged to be married. It covers a wide range of topics for every stage of a Catholic couple's marriage.
“Why” questions are fine for inquisitive minds but can be an obstacle during marital arguments. Why? It can sound accusatory. “Why did you do that?” “Why don’t you just…” Be careful of “Why” questions disguised as innocent queries.

“We are responsible for the process we use in parenting, not the outcome. Our children have free will and can choose their own paths, even destructive ones. We can guide but we can’t control. Sometimes all we can do is pray.” (Susan Vogt)
“Greet one another with a holy kiss.” (2 Cor. 13:12) There are kisses and there are kisses. Some cultures greet even strangers with a kiss on both cheeks. The marital kiss is special. Pay attention to how you kiss each other today.
