The rights and well-being of children are imperative to a thriving society, and the best way to protect children is to promote marriage.
Marriage ensures that more children are raised in a loving, stable home by both their mother and father—something that every child instinctively needs and deserves. Marriage is our children’s best hope for the future. That’s why Alliance Defending Freedom remains committed to promoting the truth that marriage is the lifelong union of one man and one woman.
Children do best with a married mom and dad
The stories of these adults who grew up with LGBT parents, most of whom were involved in same-sex relationships, all have one thing in common—as children they craved the love and presence of their missing mother or father. These courageous men and women are speaking up for marriage so that future generations of children, all of whom deserve both their mom and dad, will know that they were worth speaking up for.
