In the Image of Our Heavenly Parents - Q&A Panel

marriage Feb 16, 2023
Do you feel like you have an equal partnership in your marriage? Do you both see each other as equal contributors to the physical, emotional, spiritual, financial, and relational labor in your home and family life? A partnership marriage doesn't happen automatically. It's a conscious choice each partner makes on a daily basis to create and maintain a relationship of equals. This isn't about "sameness". It's about understanding and organizing around the unique gifts, ideas, strengths, weaknesses, and preferences of each partner. It adds richness and depth to marriage and family life. Plus, it's really good for our mental and physical health when we experience this kind of unity in marriage. 

My wife, Jody, and I recently contributed three chapters to a book called "In the Image of Our Heavenly Parents - A Couples Guide to Creating a More Divine Marriage." The editors of the book, McArthur Krishna and Bethany Brady Spalding, invited us along with Drs. Jennifer Finlayson-Fife, Julie Hanks, and Ty Mansfield, to each contribute three principles that couples can learn, practice, and live in their marriages. These 12 principles are designed to help couples create their own partnership marriage modeled after our distinct doctrine in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints that God the Father and God the Mother are married and work together in equal partnership for the benefit of their children here on earth. Even if you don't share our religious beliefs, you can still benefit from the clear guidance and support you'll find in this couples guide.

Building a partnership marriage isn't easy, as we bring our beliefs, biases, traditions, and reflexes from our past models of marriage and family life. You might wake up one day and realize things are imbalanced or need serious change. No matter where you are in your journey toward full and equal partnership in marriage, this guide will give you a place to start.
