Why We Push Marriage

This morning a person I had never before seen on the MW! Facebook page attempted to discredit nearly everything we posted for engaged couples, and arrogantly posted this query:

Why are you pushing marriage? The amount of people actually getting married is declining. The amount of people staying in marriage is around 50%. Who invented marriage anyways, the church? Rich people?

So, aside from the name of our organization being Marriage Works!, why are we pushing marriage?

Because a 50% divorce rate means there is a 50% staying married rate. And, there are millions of people each year who are on the verge of joining the 50% of those who stay married. That creates an opportunity for us.

It’s our goal to create resources and experiences that help couples build a healthy, functional marriage. Whether the divorce rate is 50% or 99%, as long as there is somebody married who’s willing to listen, we’re going to keep pushing our message.

While individual results may, Marriage Works!

    REALLY?! Come on man!! You mean to tell me successful marriages offend people?! REALLY! That’s when you know people need prayer. I mean, we all do, but that is a specific need in action. I love MW! At times when I’m salty and don’t want to change/repent, MW will convict me, make me be more patient with my spouse, encourage me, just guide me when I need it most. God bless you all! Keep on doin’ what you do!

    I only found MW yesterday, but it was right when I needed it, which cannot be a coincidence! Me and my partner of 7 years, have had a rough 2 years after a series of escalating incidents 2 summers ago. We have put a lot of time and effort trying to restore the trust and love in one another and reached a point 2 days ago where we questioned what we were doing, if it was working, can we ever fully get back to where we were? We’re due to marry in October and we have the patience to carry on working on us as long as necessary, but what I needed was faith that we WOULD get there, and MW has given me hope. So thank you, very much.

      Aimee — I’m glad you found us, and am happy that you’ve found our material helpful. Marriage is not easy, and it takes a serious commitment to work through sticky situations in love. I wish you and your finance the best as you recover from, and move beyond, what happened two years ago.
