The National Marriage Coalition is a coalition of like minded organisations who believe that marriage is, ‘the union of a man and a woman to the exclusion of all others, voluntarily entered into for life’.
Every child has a fundamental right to both a mother and a father. The best way to secure this right is to establish a loving and stable marriage between a man and woman for life. Therefore marriage should be encouraged, strengthened and supported by government, society and individuals in every possible way.
The greatest resource Australia possesses lies in the families of our nation. The families of Australia need the full economic and legal protection of the Australian government. The strength of Australian families depends on the qualities of the relationships between our nation’s mothers and fathers. Therefore the quality of our nation’s marital relationships will determine the destiny of Australia.
The National Marriage Coalition believes that there should be coordinated national government campaign to publicise the benefits of marriage as shown in the Why Marriage Matters research document. Marriage needs the full support of government at every stage and every level including premarital counselling, marriage education, marriage enrichment and pre-divorce counselling. The National Marriage Coalition believes that there needs to be a massive increase in government funding to support and strengthen Australian marriages.
