Supporting, promoting and strengthening marriage

As a Christian charity, Mothers' Union believes that the care of families is best promoted in the context of a stable and loving marriage. We believe that marriage is a relationship between one man and one woman, and that this has been ordained by God as a covenant relationship, and as the key to stable families and societies.

Through our projects, in our advocacy and as part of our faith life our aim is to promote and strengthen marriage. Many Mothers' Union members help couples prepare for their marriage. But we also realise that a stable and loving marriage isn’t always easy to achieve, particularly with the pressures and challenges of 21st century life. We regularly offer support to those who have had damaging experiences of married life.
