Benefits of Referential integrity

Hi Experts,

I am learning to use Access 2007 and have a question on Referential integrity.  When I am joining two tables together, access asks for join type. Such as 1:1, then I have the option to use Referential integrity, but what benefits would it bring me? I googled and get more confused, the answer I got is " it won't delete/update the parent information when the child information referred to is modified."
