Our Marriage Matters exists to equip marriage and families with practical workshops and resources needed to build and strengthen marriages. Our desire is to help in every way we can to prevent the breakdown in marital relationships which leads to conflict that ruins the relationship and tragically leads to divorce.
Marriage in Crisis
Every 45 seconds a marriage ends in America. With it ends not only a covenant of love, but also the stability of a home, financial solidity, and a model of committed love for children to take into their own marriages. Every 45 seconds, American loses more than another marriage. It loses another building block in the structure of what secures her future: strong, loving relationships based on respect, commitment and integrity.
This year alone, 1.2 million families will experience the rupturing and fragmentation of divorce! Since 2001, the divorce rate in America has risen to 6 million, affecting many millions of children.
The statistics are staggering. According to the Institute for American Values:
- Divorce costs taxpayers at least $112 billion per year.
- 4 weeks of work time is lost during the first year after a divorce.
- $150 billion is the annual cost of divorce to U.S. businesses.
- Just a 1 percent reduction in family fragmentation would save taxpayers $1.1 billion.
Even a small improvement in the health of marriage in America would result in enormous savings to taxpayers.
