This study affirms that the family’s image in Romania has been deteriorated by the reductional interpretations concerning man and family, that the comunist regime, based on the marxist-leninist ideology, propagated. For a correct understanding of the family, we must invoke the inexhaustible source represented by the Holy Scripture. Within it, we find out that the family is created by God (not by man), that family means life shared to others (children: brothers and sisters; etc.), that sons must respect their parents, that life is a sacred gift and must be accepted accordingly, that the model of inside family relations is the saint family from Nazareth, that the love between husband and wife finds its exemplary model in the love between Jesus Christ and His Church. In conclusion, the article pleeds for the respect of the divine plan concerning the family.
