Today is the first day of National Marriage Week! What will you do to strengthen the image and concept of marriage in your community?
So, just what is National Marriage Week?
National Marriage Week USA—from February 7th to 14th every year — is a collaborative effort to encourage many diverse groups to strengthen individual marriages, reduce the divorce rate, and build a stronger marriage culture, which in turn helps curtail poverty and benefits children. Together we can make more impact than working alone.
There’s so much you can do:

But, remember true change and commitment starts at home! So you can:

Maybe use the results as a topic for discussion on a special weekend retreat or date night—even Valentine’s Day!
