MarriageWeek in an independent, non-profit association, with clear goals for encouraging couples in their ongoing relationship. The activites are managed by volounteers and the financial administration and donor reporting is overseen by an independent group.
Every year, from the 7th - 14th of February, MarriageWeek gives the couple the opportunity and the encouragement to focus on their relationship. We have long seen the 14th as an expression of romantic love, and «marriage week» embraces this important concept as well as giving a place for friendship, communication, forgiveness and fun. Those who are preparing for marriage, as well as those already married, will feel the encouragement to invest in their couple in a special way during the week. It would be unreasonable to suggest that divorce will disappear as a consequence, but undeniably such week can have a long standing impact on many couples.
MarriageWeek supports individual events through creating an umbrella of publicity and general interest. It is very much a media and political event in which restaurants, commences, churches, and charities can all participate. MarriageWeek does not have a central organization of events.
The 2010 report is available in french and german
