This year I invite you to a dinner event for relationship fun.
Two years ago, Jack took me out to dinner on Valentine’s Day to one of the nicest ‘tablecloth’ restaurants in Dallas. We were enjoying the elegance and the opportunity to focus on our love. I was even teary-eyed by the sincerity of the card Jack gave me.
We were aware that the dining room was packed with couples. But only a few of them were even talking to each other. There seemed to be avoidance, silence and attitudes of just eating another meal. This year, we want to help couples have a fun and interesting time together on Valentine’s Day. So, join us for a fun time over a lovely dinner the week before. We will give you some new ideas, some laughter and some friendliness. Because…the best marriages are couples who are romantic best friends.
Here is the announcement from nationalmarriageweekusa.org:
From February 7th to 14th every year– is a collaborative campaign to strengthen individual marriages, reduce the divorce rate, and build a stronger marriage culture, which in turn helps curtail poverty and benefits children. Together we can make more impact than working alone.
Together For Marriage
Marriage works. It makes people happier, live longer, and builds more economic security. Children with married parents perform better in school. There is new research on “Why Marriage Matters: Thirty Conclusions from Social Science.”
Deep down, everyone wishes they could have a rewarding lifelong commitment with their spouse. But in the midst of challenges, we forget how marriage can benefit our personal lives. We are losing our determination and the skills to keep marriages healthy and strong.
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. And, it is the major preventative for poverty.
Please join with us, Heather and Jack, to recognize National Marriage Week USA with your own relationship. We want to honor what marriage has to offer and be role models to show the younger generation the love and meaning we create together. The young people today are avoiding marriage because of the difficulties they experienced from the divorces in their parents’ generation.
I promise to have my Designer Marriage Handbook ready for autographs that night.
