Problem

Inadequate existing symbols for marriage

Other Names:
Lack of sustaining symbols in marriages
Manipulation of marriage by inadequate symbols
Nature:
Couples are not conscious of the need for sustaining symbols in marriage. They are therefore manipulated by inadequate symbols created by society, such as the album of wedding photographs. These reduce the significance of the family as an institution and tend to define the roles of men and women as merely sexual and financial, limiting the context in which marriage operates and disintegrating of the roles each individual must play in order to sustain the family covenant.
Problem Type:
