Get the vision for Marriage Week
from founder - Richard Kane
The vision of Marriage Week International is to encourage the development and support of Marriage Week’s in 75 nations of the World by 2021.
Marriage Week in a nation draws together media, business, government, faith groups and in fact anyone who cares about marriage. Thousands of local events occur each year in bars, restaurants, community halls, and more often than not in Churches.
Historically Marriage Week’s would only occur to coincide with Valentines Day, however increasingly Marriage Week’s are occurring at different times of the year, such as Ukraine in May, and Australia in September.
Marriage Week celebrates the diversity and vibrancy of marriage as the basis for family life.
We are convinced that marriage is a brilliant institution that all of society should celebrate. Hence Marriage Week, a time to say “Wake up. Marriage is a great idea”, and since a healthy marriage is a skill, let’s learn some new skills to turn our marriages from good to very good!
We believe that a great marriage can be learnt, just the same way as a person can learn to read a book, drive a car or ski down a mountain.
We are a group of charities and individuals who believe that healthy marriage is a great idea that creates stability and security (along with plenty of fun and laughter) for Husband, Wife, and any children which may arrive.
We want to get everyone in the World talking about relationship skills, attending Marriage Week local events and remembering, for those who are married, why they fell in love in the first place.
We are distinctly orientated towards the promotion of the importance of marriage, and encouraging couples to see the benefits of adopting an “intentional” marriage. We consider that from a spiritual, physical, financial and statistical perspective, marriage provides the best possible environment for a healthy relationship to develop, or in other words it is the best choice a couple can make.
The message is very simple and that's why it is so compelling. "If you are fortunate to be in a marriage, you should look after it - and here are some tips to help you improve your relationship, and some signposts to organisations who can help you transform a good marriage into a great marriage."
