He indicated that after marriage man and woman become one pulpit. If one of the spouses has not reported it to change, the couple has, as a matrimonial regime, community of property. They must work for their children and fight against poverty.

The Head of State said that it is God who unites the family. Thus, he asked the spouses to love, to understand and to trust each other.
