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.
