Aims

We champion long-lasting, stable relationships within marriage. 

There are other organisations which support couple relationships of all types; valuable work but not our mission.

Governments cannot legislate stronger relationships into existence. Ultimately, more stronger and longer-lasting marriages will be a product of our individual choices, behaviour and culture. The Marriage Foundation will seek to influence the way individuals, couples and society as a whole think about forming, maintaining and ending relationships. We therefore aim to promote:

  • wider and earlier access to relationships support and education
  • better public understanding of the nature and benefits of marriage
