A word that is not often associated with discussions about marriage and family is the word “friendship”. We readily talk about communication, managing conflict, date nights, etc., and we will talk about those aspects of family/marriage life. Beyond that, we can also view “friendship” as a paradigm for marriage and family life. In John’s Gospel, Jesus clarifies that the highest level of relationship to which he calls us is friendship with him and, necessarily, with all others.
