About Us

The Alternatives to Marriage Project is a national nonprofit organization for unmarried people. We provide support and information to people who choose not to marry, are prevented from marrying, or who live together before marriage. We work for greater understanding and acceptance of unmarried people.

We are not against marriage. But we believe that unmarried relationships also deserve validation and support. People may be pressured to marry by their families, friends, and communities. They may also face marital status discrimination. We oppose this unfair treatment and advocate for the equal rights of unmarried people.

The Alternatives to Marriage Project is open to everyone, including singles, couples, married people, people in relationships with more than two people, and people of all genders and sexual orientations. We welcome our married supporters, who are among the many friends, relatives, and allies of unmarried people.
