National Marriage Week is February 7th through 14th!
The National Marriage Week USA Organization sent the following email about this week’s activities to us at The Perfect Wedding Guide:
National Marriage Week USA (Feb. 7-14) provides a positive way to actually help reverse the alarming decline of marriage in your church or your town during the week leading up to Valentine’s Day.
This week National Marriage Week USA launched a free FUN video clip series-the Affordable Wedding Project-with stories about how to help couples create more affordable weddings, since clergy say they are seeing increased cohabitation while couples feel they must save up for today’s overly expensive wedding events.
Watch and share these compelling short 90-second and 5-minute free videos that tell alternative ideas–one couple put together a beautiful wedding for $8000, another tell of their intimate, heartwarming wedding inside the home of a friend, one woman put together a wedding in one week for her friends who had neither time or money. Watch and share at http://www.nationalmarriageweekusa.org/affordableweddings.
Just this week was also published an excellent article-chock full of statistics and what we can do about the decline of marriage-plus a Q & A with Sheila Weber, NMW Executive Director, who shares her personal thoughts about how to help rescue more marriages and assist the younger generation, which is increasingly choosing cohabitation.
The Online National Marriage Calendar,free to every one, is hosted at http://www.NationalMarriageWeekUSA.org. You can list or locate for free ANY marriage class or activity all year long. Help your own marriage or reach out and help someone else!
