Building Better Marriages
Providing Quality Information to Build Great Marriages
I created this page as a launch to pursue a passion and commitment. My passion is to see marriages succeed. My commitment is to help those who are married, or are thinking about getting married to, literally, BUILD BETTER MARRIAGES.
I desire to see marriages that are GROWING where both spouses are INVESTED fully in one another. I desire to see marriages that UTILIZE THE STRENGTHS of both individuals in that marriage. I desire to see marriages where couples know how to COMMUNICATE AND COMPROMISE. Yet, most of all, I desire to see marriages that MODEL how a relationship can improve the overall life of the individuals within the relationship, the children that are born out of those relationships and the community of families and individuals that surround those relationships.
The state of marriage today is GLOOMY at best! 50 – 52% of marriages FAIL. I believe, and many other marriage experts believe, that the institute of marriage is in trouble here in the United States. Not only are the individuals hurting who are in marriages that fail, but the effects are seen in the children of failing marriages, and the communities where there is is a rise in single parent homes. It seems like an impossible task, but I, along with many others, are trying to turn around the institute of marriage.
I will use this page to provide resources and updates that will help you improve your marriage even while your are attending counseling, or even if you are not. Also, I intend this to be the start of bringing together others who want to join in this fight to BUILD BETTER MARRIAGES.
