Creating a Future of Progress, Growth, and Stability

Almost nothing can benefit society the way marriage does. As a culture, we must firmly stand against attempts to redefine marriage—to make marriage something that it’s not. We need to work together to rebuild a healthy marriage culture where our future respects and defends its natural foundation: the family.

Marriage Is Our Future

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.
