Don't Miss Out on National Marriage Week!

posted by Michele Olson
National Marriage Week is not kidding around this year! Perhaps you’ve heard of National Marriage Week before. It runs Feb. 7-14th. It started in the UK in 1996. It has now spread to The Czech Republic, Hungry, Switzerland, Germany, Belgium, Ireland, Northern Ireland, and Australia. It’s been going strong here in the good ‘ole USA since 2002 thanks to the efforts of co-founders Brent Barlow and Diane Sollee of Smart Marriages. (An organization that is a great friend of thinkmarriage.org)

This year “this big idea” has made a concentrated effort to make the appeal for stronger marriages even louder through a national campaign and website. Entitled: Let’s Strengthen Marriage, much effort has resulted in getting everyone with an interest in this topic to work on healthy marriages together. The plan is to get recognized across the country as a collective group with the same goal…even if many paths are a part of the journey to that recognition. That means everyone is included who somehow touches or is affected by the health of the marriages in our country. The list includes houses of worship, businesses, education, the media, government and yes, individual people and couples.

Visit the site and scroll to Feb. 7-14th to see our hefty offering of what is happening in Wisconsin to celebrate National Marriage Week.

It’s coming up quickly, so jump in and get involved in some way. Your voice encouraging healthy marriages in your circle of influence really does matter.
Don’t forget you can get a free Marriage Myth Buster Guide and Love Letter Kit (while supplies last) at the thinkmarriage.org store.

Don’t miss out…and then let us know here on the blog how you are participating!
