You may be wondering, why in the world is there a National Marriage Week.
Just like Go Red Day promotes awareness of women and heart disease or the NFL football players wearing pink to bring awareness to breast cancer, this week has been set aside to bring awareness to the importance of healthy marriage in our communities, states and nation.
Research consistently indicates that almost 90 percent of Americans plan to marry at some point in life. But just like with the symptoms of heart disease or breast cancer, many don't know the signs and symptoms of unhealthy relationships nor do they have the tools necessary to build a healthy marriage.
There are many specific things we can do to prevent heart disease, the key is putting them into practice.
It is no different with marriage. There are many things all of us can do to build a healthy marriage - but we have to move from all talk to action.
