Marriage was the first human institution. Webster’s Dictionary defines marriage as “the institution whereby men and women are joined in a special kind of social and legal dependence for the purpose of founding and maintaining a family.” Marriage and family is the foundation of the church, our communities, and our nation. When the foundation crumbles, the whole society crumbles. Marriage is under attack as never before. What begins with high hopes of wedded bliss all too often ends in irreconcilable differences or worse. The statistics show that the institution of marriage is in crisis.
- Four out of ten first marriages fail.
- Six of ten second marriages fail.
- Seven of ten third marriages fail.
- Eighty percent of couples who live together break up before or after the wedding. Six million Americans are living together.
- Only six percent of marriages are thriving.
Marriage Connect is a 501(c)3 organization. All donations are tax deductible. The mission of Marriage Connect is to enrich lives by equipping and empowering individuals to cultivate life giving relationships. We help struggling couples to reconnect, good marriages to become better, engaged couples to prepare for success, and divorced individuals to recover.
It costs Marriage Connect $2,400 to provide one week of intensive life coaching to a couple. The majority of couples in struggling marriages are also struggling financially. While we ask each couple for a suggested minimum donation of $1,200 for life coaching, we serve anyone who comes to us regardless of their ability to donate. We are looking for people who are willing to SPONSOR A MARRIAGE. With a tax deductible gift of $30 a month, you can SPONSOR A MARRIAGE and become part of the Marriage Connect team. Your sponsorship will enable couples to receive the help they need. Together we can rebuild the foundation one marriage at a time.
