Marriage Foundation due to be launched this week
New charity, established by Sir Paul Coleridge, will champion marriage as the ‘gold standard of relationships’
The Marriage Foundation will be launched at Middle Temple Hall this week. The new charity is rooted in the vision and concern of Sir Paul Coleridge. Its purpose is to champion the institution of marriage as the "gold standard for relationships".
Sir Paul was appointed a High Court judge in 2000 after 30 years as a family law specialist at the Bar. He has been outspoken on this issue for some time, receiving widespread media coverage and rising levels of public interest and support.
Sir Paul Coleridge recently said:
"We are in the latter stages of the formation of The Marriage Foundation. We aim to be the central and national voice of marriage putting the case whenever and wherever necessary. Our case for marriage is based on a pragmatic evaluation of the advantages to individuals especially children, families, and the local and national community. In short we simply cannot afford the financial and human cost of family breakdown and championing marriage as the gold standard for human relationships is where we have to start."
