The Marriage Reality Coalition

Archbishop Salvatore keynotes at the launch of the Marriage Reality Movement.

Leaders, Organizations and Ministries Endorsing
Uniting Strategic Objectives for Rebuilding a Marriage Culture

Join the Organizations Endorsing the Three Uniting Principles and Objectives. [1]

Restoring a marriage culture will not result from the work of any single strategy, program or organization but of many people and organizations contributing their expertise, experience and creativity in pursuit of this common objective through their own mission.

Expressing and keeping in mind what we are for, not against, is critical and we, the undersigned, endorse the three uniting principles and objectives of the Marriage Reality Coalition based on the rights of children to be raised in a family with their mother and father united in marriage. We will not rest until the sole institution that particularly unites children with their mothers and fathers once again becomes a privileged civil institution, and is promoted by every law, every curriculum and every institution.

The Three Uniting
Strategic Objectives
of the
Marriage Reality Coalition

We pledge to:

  1. Defend and promote the human right of the child "to be conceived, carried in the womb, brought into the world and brought up within marriage: it is through the secure and recognized relationship to his own parents that the child can discover his own identity and achieve his own proper human development.”1
  2. Defend and promote the human right of young people to have “freedom in seeking and knowing the truth”2 about love, sexuality, marriage and family. Young people cannot seek and discover the truth if it is hidden from them by school curricula and popular culture.
  3. Evaluate every law, institution and curriculum by how well it promotes men and woman marrying before having children, supports young people developing relationships that lead to marriage and supports men and women in their marriages.3
