John Stonestreet asks and answers the questions: What is marriage? Why is it important? How does it fit into society? He disputes the notions that marriage is only a social construct or that it only comes from, and applies to, religious communities. Almost every civilization of which we have record has some idea of natural and traditional family. Based on extensive research, John details four findings about the family in culture that prove when marriage and the family are strong, society is strong.
