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!
