Today marks the beginning of a seven-day focus on the importance of marriage in our nation.
As marriage bloggers for the past decade, it has been our passion to sound this call every week, not just one week a year during the month of February. And we are privileged to be a part of the Christian Marriage Bloggers Association where hundreds of marriage bloggers do the same.
It is a privilege to be able to share with you what this ministry is doing to help us help others. The following is the national press release provided by the National Marriage Week organization.
NEW YORK – Jan. 15, 2019 – PrZen — Numerous studies show that marriage is the number one solution to poverty and helps children and families thrive. National Marriage Week (February 7-14) is an ideal time to highlight the importance of marriage for individuals, families, and our nation as a whole.
National Marriage Week USA is:
1. A movement to increase marriage education all across the U.S.
2. The only national clearinghouse calendar for locating and posting marriage events
3. A public education campaign to promote the benefits of marriage for reducing poverty and benefiting children
4. A place to find help for your own marriage – whether you are struggling or not – in your community
“We exist to strengthen marriages around the country and to support those in every community who are seeking to be ‘marriage champions’,” said Executive Director Sheila Weber. “Marriage benefits children in extraordinary ways, and like any public health campaign, we want to have a sustained campaign to help marriages succeed.”
ABOUT NATIONAL MARRIAGE WEEK USA
National Marriage Week USA was founded in 2010 to encourage many diverse groups to launch individual and simultaneous efforts in order to raise the issue of marriage to the national agenda and support marriages across the country. We seek to build cooperation with houses of worship, businesses, education, the media, and governments.
