Marriage and Family

Marriages and families are the fundamental building block of all human civilization. To maintain a stable society it is critical that we have strong marriages that provide a safe and healthy environment for children to grow. The lifelong, faithful union of a man and a woman provides many obvious benefits to society, especially children, in ways that no other relationship can.

Therefore, government and society should protect and strengthen marriage, not undermine it.

Ultimately, however, God gives marriage its significance. Immediately after the creation of a man and a woman God established the institution of marriage when He said “a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh” (Genesis 2:26).
