God intends us to save ourselves for marriage. Mary is the example we as women should try to live up to and men should strive to treat women with respect and remain a virgin as well and try to live a virtuous life like St. Joseph and how he treated her with reverence. The family is the most fundamental thing in society and God gave us the Holy family to look up to. We should try to live a life of chastity and follow the footsteps of Mary and St. Joseph. St. Joseph respected Mary and Jesus and lived to be there provider and protector of there family. He took Mary as his wife even when she was pregnant and the child wasn’t his. He listened to God and obeyed him to look after them for the rest of his life. He is one of the greatest saints and he remained chaste throughout his whole life out of respect for the Mother of God.
