Summary / Abstract:

ENThroughout all human history of raising and educating children, nothing better and more appropriate than a family has been found. It is the main reason why the family is the fundamental good of a person, society and state. Today, in the face of the cultural challenge caused by “gender ideology“ (which denies the difference and reciprocity in nature of a man and a woman and anticipates a society without gender differences, thereby removing the anthropological foundation of family), a dramatically lowered birth rate and the collapse of the family institution, there is no need to argue that in order to survive as a nation and a human race, the main goal must be the preparation of young people for marriage and family. Today it is very important to purify moral principles, which could become a cornerstone for youth’s preparation for family life. Human dignity could become a universal dimension of the preparation for family life since it is a strong category and an integral part of the fact of human existence from which all inalienable human rights arise. The goal of the paper: To present the basic elements of the preparation of youth for marriage and family life based on the conception of human dignity. Tasks of the paper: 1) To describe the concept of human dignity; 2) To distinguish the features of basic elements of the preparation of youth to marriage and family life. [Extract, p. 97-98]
