The Hungarian Fundamental Law attaches special importance to the family. It protects the institution of marriage, and states that the foundation of family lies within marriage and parent-child relationship. It declares that Hungary shall encourage the citizens’ commitment to have children. A Cardinal Act provides the protection of families, which symbolizes the fact that the objectives of family policy shall be respected by all governments.

The objective can be achieved with a stable, complex, targeted and flexible family policy that is capable of adapting to changing needs and conditions.
