Family and Marriage

We defend the natural identity of marriage as a reality linking a woman and a man in a permanent, exclusive relationship of a deep psychological, sexual and economic relationship, naturally oriented towards having children. We act as spokesmen affirmed in the national constitutional order and acts of international law, the truth about the family, as a natural environment for the development and well-being of all its members, in particular children, the source of diversity of free society. We emphasize that the most complete guarantee of children's good is education by biological parents who are married.

The full development of this natural growth environment requires good law, respecting the constitutional principles of subsidiarity, protection of the family and its life, determining the limits of state interference in family life. A law that recognizes the primacy of parents over you in the matter of bringing up children in accordance with your conscience and convictions. That is why we examine family policy instruments and act actively in defending the family, motherhood and parenthood where they are threatened by discriminatory practices of the legislator.
