Did you know it’s National Marriage Week this week?
Yep. And the National Marriage Week website says this:
Marriage works. It makes people happier, live longer, and build more economic security. Children with married parents perform better in school. Click here for new research on “Why Marriage Matters: Thirty Conclusions from Social Science.”
Marriage breakdown is costly to our kids and to society at large. Divorce and unwed childbearing cost the U.S. taxpayers a whopping $112 billion annually. In these economic challenging times, building stronger marriages helps build a stronger nation.

WHY? Because it definitely signifies a lifelong commitment our characters are making to one another. True Romance.
