I’m always happy to hear about new and unique ways to help preserve marriage. In South Florida, a church and pastor are getting into the marriage saving business. Through a six week session, which includes newlyweds and couples who have been married for years, the Pastor helps these couples learn how to relate to one another and teaches them techniques to save their marriages, or help strengthen marriages which are already strong. The unique thing about this program is that the sessions are together with other couples, and this program has state funding. With 50% of marriages ending in divorce, this program and others like them, are a wonderful way to try to cut that statistic.
