nmdimageThe Australian Family Association (AFA) will be holding events in New South Wales and Western Australia to celebrate National Marriage Day, and you are invited to attend.

National Marriage Day is a chance to celebrate the special union of marriage, and to recognise the need of children to both a mother and a father.

AFA is a not-for-profit, voluntary, and non-party political organisation formed to be provide a forum and a vehicle for those individuals and organisations in the community concerned with the strengthening and support of the family unit. AFA was also one of the major sponsors of this year's World Congress of Families (WCF) event in Sydney. Read the declaration made by the WCF 2013 here.

We encourage you to get behind National Marriage Day by attending an AFA event or by helping to organise an event in your own state. Find out more about how you can do this by visiting the AFA website.
