Redefining marriage is the first step in creating a new society based on a new perception of morality.

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.
