14- Are you aware of a "spiritual warfare?"

You can visit this link: The family under Siege.

We are in a 'culture war' says Mary Healy!There is a strong current trying to undermine the marital bond and all that it safeguards: the family, the dignity of man and woman, the sanctity of human life. Our enemies in this battle are not human beings but "principalities, powers, the world rulers of this present darkness" (Ephesians 6:12) whose goal is nothing less than to destroy humanity. The prophetic voice of Pope John Paul II has long recognized that the current threat to marriage and the family jeopardizes not only the life of individuals but civilization itself. As he puts it, "the future of humanity passes through the family." The family is where a person learns what it means to be human. As goes the family, so goes humanity. Divorce, contraception, abortion, cloning and same-sex marriage are all an attack on God's plan for life and love. And because marriage is the deepest symbolic revelation of God's relationship to us, these evils obscure the face of God...Mary Healy Men and Women are From Eden

Getting married is entering into battle against evil.  Being aware of this struggle is the first step.  Being forewarned is being forearmed and daily prayer is the best armor.  Plus, we're not alone; God is fighting for us! Listen to St. Paul's advice:
Finally, draw your strength from the Lord and from his mighty power. Put on the armor of God so that you may be able to stand firm against the tactics of the devil.... So stand fast with you loins girded in truth, clothed with righteousness as a breastplate, and your feet shod in readiness for the gospel of peace. In all circumstances, hold faith as a shield, to quench all the flaming arrows of the evil one. And take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the work of God. With all prayer and supplication, pray at every opportunity in the Spirit.  Ephesians 6: 10-18

We have to protect ourselves against the spirit of this world. For example, Christian and Christine chose to not have direct TV at all. Even their daughters say how much they appreciate! They have a DVD player and watch movies and that's enough!

We are weak in front of the temptations brought by our culture and we have to take the means to protect ourselves.
