They have to remain faithful and bring one another closer to God. They are called to sacrifices and growth in holiness. The responsibilities they have towards their children would be to educate, love, respect, and lead by example. They have to fulfill their child's physical, emotional, and spiritual needs. Lastly, their responsibility towards the wider Church community is to be a symbol of God's love.
