Family policy is very important in each country. Given the differences between European Union countries, it is a truism that each has its own family policy. However, the challenge of each is similar: to address demographic changes such as lower fertility, emigration, population aging, divorces, same-sex relationships and new models of family, including de facto families. The resulting trends in family law are not necessarily converging to a harmonized European Union family law. This article therefore considers Polish constitutional provisions on family with respect to the current trends in family law in the European Union as a case study.
