Uniting one man and one woman together for life within marriage is vital to a healthy society. Through these marriages, children are united with their mother and father, who each uniquely contribute to the raising of the next generation. While marriage is the building block of the family, families, in turn, provide the necessary foundation for all society. A strong society requires strong families. Therefore, policies that strengthen and promote traditional marriage and the family must be encouraged. MCC supports:
Promoting the traditional definition of marriage as the union of one man and one woman,
Tax policies that protect and promote the stability of marriage and the institution of the family,
Policies that strengthen the long-standing relationship between the State of Michigan and nonprofit agencies in the provision of child placement services,
Amending Michigan’s no-fault divorce laws, and
Policies that combat human trafficking, domestic violence, and abuse of vulnerable persons.
