The majority of citizens in the majority of states still believe in marriage as the union of one man and one woman. Most states still define marriage as being between only a man and a woman, and in most cases by means of a popularly-adopted constitutional amendment. Until very recently, the truth of man-woman marriage was nearly universally accepted across all cultural divides and in every era. It is just common sense.
Our young people in particular need to see how much support there is for marriage at the grassroots.By standing tens-of-thousands strong together in our nation’s capital, we will send a clear message to pro-marriage Americans everywhere, and especially young people: “You are not alone! Do not be afraid to stand up and speak out for the values that have been passed onto you.”
Marriage is not a divisive belief: on the contrary, as the March will demonstrate, it brings people together from every race and background, from every faith, and from every age group.Marriage is a universal good.
