The discussion of the impact of marriage on family parenting in modern society has become a hot topic. As a child's future as a family, parents often give all their efforts and energy to train them to be useful to society and the country. The purpose of this study is to investigate and analyze the relationship between the marital status of couples and their parenting views. In this paper, a questionnaire survey method is used to survey 2000 pairs of parents of different ages and occupational backgrounds on parenting attitudes and marriage fit in a province. The survey questionnaire data is summarized, and comparative data are obtained through comparative analysis. Experimental data show that 82.1% of the respondents have good marital status, and there is no significant difference in the perception and evaluation of marriage between the couple. Most of the views on parenting in 2000 were at a moderate level: the understanding of parental role responsibilities was not too high or low, and the impression of parenting was not too positive or negative. Marital adaptation status has an impact on the positive parenting impression of the father, and future family members will have an impact on the positive parenting impression of the mother. Experimental data show that husband and wife's understanding and understanding of parenting is relatively rational and there is no significant difference between father and mother. At the same time, the results also showed that the vast majority of couples were in good marital status, and there was no significant difference in the perception and evaluation of marriage between the couple. Marital status has an important effect on the concept of parenting.
