Equipping Christians for the General Election

Where do the main parties stand on family and tax?
Public Affairs

CARE believes that marriage between a man and a woman is good for the family and therefore good for society.  The social science evidence strongly underlines this wisdom, demonstrating the overwhelming benefits of marriage to both adults and children. CARE believes governments should create a public policy framework that supports marriage through the tax system and makes getting married no harder in this country than is the case across the developed world.
