We believe that marriage is the central foundation of the family. A healthy marriage builds a healthy family, which leads to the most basic foundation of society. Most importantly, we believe that marriage is essential to the well-being of children. Decades of social science research shows that children do best when raised with a married mother and father. Kentucky consistently ranks as one of the states with the highest rates of divorce. By strengthening marriages in the Commonwealth, we are empowering families and securing the future of our next generation.
