Three Things to Which Every Child is Entitled

"THE FAMILY is ordained of God. Marriage between man and woman is essential to His eternal plan. Children are entitled to birth within the bonds of matrimony, and to be reared by a father and a mother who honor marital vows with complete fidelity."



In our society and world today there is an entitlement mentality that runs rampant. We all hear phrases on a daily basis like "they owe it to me" and "it's my right!"

This sense of entitlement is especially pervasive in younger generations who have never truly tasted sacrifice and hardship. We often forget that rights come with responsibilities. In my opinion it's time that we hear more about our responsibilities and less about our rights.

That being said there are three things to which every child is entitled. It does not matter where or when they are born; their language, race, and nationality are irrelevant.

Every child is entitled to:
  1. Be born within the bonds of matrimony
  2. To be reared by both a father and a mother
  3. For their father and mother to honor their marital vows with complete fidelity
Marriage was instituted and is ordained by God to give each child these three things. 

It is true that there are cases where children will be born into situations less than ideal where either father or mother is not present or where father and mother are not married or living their marital vows as they should.

However, while this can be the case it should be the exception and not the rule. I came across a great public policy argument in defense of marriage made by scholar Ryan T. Anderson. This is a video of an address he gave at Stanford University. It's a little long but let me know what you think.


Marriage is ordained of God. Every child is entitled to be born to a husband and wife who love one another and honor their marital vows with complete fidelity. This is the situation best suited (and dictated by God) to give children what they need to be successful.
