Marriage Week Plans?

M

The week leading up to Valentine’s Day (Sunday, February 14, 2010) is Marriage Week. Does your community group, mosque, church, temple, or synagogue have something planned? It might make the difference between a couple giving up on each other and a family staying together, growing strong.
The Smart Marriages website lists lots of Marriage Week ideas. How about sponsoring a college basketball game and celebrating married couples on the Jumbotron? How about a showing of the movie Fireproof? Or perhaps just publish a list of those couples in your group celebrating their 10th, 25th, 35th, or 50th anniversaries this year?
None of these is a huge amount of work, but any one of them could be enough to help several couples over a rough spot in their marriage. When their sisters, brothers, or friends get stuck in a marital problem years later, your efforts will make a difference again. When the children of these couples begin dating, what happened when they were kids will affect their choices. When they marry, it may mean their kids get to be inspired by attending their grandparents’ fiftieth anniversary celebration.
Let me know with a comment what you have planned this February.
