Forces of Disintegration

In Ireland in 1994 , the International Year of the Family, the then Minister of Social Welfare, Dr. Michael Woods T.D., announced that his department had embraced the U.N. definition of the family as:

"Any combination of two or more persons who are bound together by ties of mutual consent, birth, adoption or placement, and who together assume responsibility for, inter alia, the care and maintenance of group members, the addition of new members through procreation or adoption, the socialisation of children and the social control of its members".

The Vatican has warned of the serious threat posed to the family by "the facile recognition of other forms of union with an equality of rights". This has been identified as an attack on the rights of marriage.
