Pro-marriage movement

Pro-marriage movements exist in many countries, supporting the traditional definition of marriage as being between one man and one woman. This is opposed to same-sex marriage, which is becoming more common in the western world. It is still the case that the vast majority of the world's countries do not recognise same-sex marriage.
Until the early 21st century, the world as a whole believed that marriage was between a man and a woman. Common issues include the upbringing of children without their own mother and father.
Another common issue raised is religious freedom, as many religious institutions do not recognise same-sex marriage. Where same-sex marriage is legal, there are already cases where religious organisations and persons of faith in civil office cannot object. The well-publicised case of Kim Davis, who was jailed in the United States in 2015 for adhering to her own religious belief, is one example.
In March 2017, a controversy arose when Australian company Coopers Beer was persecuted for releasing a video in which both sides of the argument were presented, with no bias to one or other side.
