Elena Barman greeted and thanked participants at the meeting and underlined the relevance of this holiday in the modern context, emphasizing that such fundamental values as family, home, mutual support, respect and understanding would always continue to remain the bedrock of any society.

Arseny Starkov congratulated the attendees on behalf of the RCSC Director Fedor Rozovskiy, and spoke of the traditions and history associated with the All-Russian Day of Family, Love and Faith.

There was a video presentation on the history, relevance and background of this Day. The highlight of the function was a group discussion followed by lively, spirited and interactive debate on the crucial but relevant issue of modern society, namely, the choice between Love Marriage and Arranged Marriage. By a lucky draw, two groups were selected under each category. Members of each group spoke their views on the relevant aspects of marriage, followed by the pros and cons and positive and negative effects.
