A little bit more
Founded in 1980, the Australian Family Association is a not-for-profit, voluntary, and (non-party) political organisation which has been formed to provide a forum and a vehicle for those individuals and organisations in the community concerned with the strengthening and support of the family.
Definition of marriage and family
Fundamental to the position of the Australian Family Association are MARRIAGE as defined in the Marriage Act 1961 and the Family Law Act as ‘the union of a man and a woman to the exclusion of all others voluntarily entered into for life and the FAMILY which is composed essentially of a father, mother and children; in a wider but still necessary relationship, of grandparents, grandchildren, aunts, uncles; a kinship group of human beings linked by ties of blood, marriage and adoption, structured to bear and rear children, to care for the young, the sick and the old and other human needs.
