The word "family" is associated with warm tender relations between members of the family. A consideration (уважение) fortress (крепость) of such relations became possible when people in the family do many things together, overcome troubles and live friendly. Love gives a feeling of happiness.
But nowadays young people think that family cannot be based only on love and understanding. The social position & salary are also important. But on other hand, labor achievements, mood and what is called happiness depend on family relations. When young people marry, they sometimes think that happiness in their marriage will be created by somebody else, not by themselves. They are mistaken. It is their own duty. Both husband and wife must create their future together. A strong marriage does not mean that husband and wife must have similar characters but the ability to understand each other. It’s really very difficult to keep up a marriage without mutual (взаимный) understanding. All members of the family should trust each other; tell each other about their joys and sorrows (печали).
Children should love, respect and obey (слушаться) their parents. Their parents should also remember that role of family in the children’s personality formation is exceptional; no other social institution can substitute it. The erosion of family relations inevitably (неизбежно) leads to the deformation in the normal children’s development. Clever and understanding parents always should be ready to help their children and find the way out.
Housework may take a great deal of people’s time. But if all members of the family help each other, have their special duties, keeping house won’t be so difficult. To create a happy family is a difficult task, but everything depends on ourselves. Family will be happy only when everyone will think about the happiness of the others.
