The ethos of Mothers' Union is "Christian care for families" and it is particularly concerned with promoting marriage as a lifelong partnership. Couples may become so focussed on the detail of their fairytale wedding day that they may miss the significance of the marriage vows (promises) made to each other during the wedding service. Mothers' Union wishes couples to be aware that the Wedding is just one day but Marriage is a lifetime. Marriage is about loving for life.
