National Marriage Week Begins Today
Marriage works. It makes people happier, live longer, and build more economic security. Children with married parents perform better in school. Read short summary from "The Case for Marriage" here.
Deep down, everyone wishes they could have a rewarding lifelong commitment with their spouse. But in the midst of challenges, we forget how marriage can benefit our personal lives. We are losing our determination and the skills to keep marriages heal thy and strong.
Marriage breakdown is costly to our kids and to society at large. Divorce and unwed childbearing cost the U.S. taxpayers a whopping $112 billion annually.
In these economic challenging times, building stronger marriages helps build a stronger nation.
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.
Please join Worth More than Rubies as we celebrate National Marriage Week. The week will include daily postings for married couples and will culminate with an Online Marriage Conference on February 13, 2010. Click here for more details on the conference
