Marriage is a powerful creator and sustainer of human and social capital for adults as well as children, and is important to promoting the health, wealth, and well-being of adults and communities. We honor and commemorate the importance of marriage by hosting community events that pay tribute to couples who have learned how to love well. We tell their stories through commemorative events, storytelling, movie screenings, special weekend marriage retreats and recognitions that focus on what makes marriage good and sacred.
