In Fundamentals of the Jurisprudence of the Family - Building on Rock or Sand? Professor Lynn D. Wardle explains the importance of a comparative study of the jurisprudence of the family. Through the story of the wise man who built his house upon a rock and the foolish man who built his house upon sand, Professor Wardle illustrates why it is important to have a solid foundation to build a strong family: that some degree of permanence and stability in marriage is important because it takes time to raise a family. Professor Wardle then describes why a study of comparative constitutional law is helpful.
