Every 45 seconds a marriage ends in America. With it ends not only a covenant of love, but also the stability of a home, financial solidity, and a model of committed love for children to take into their own marriages. Every 45 seconds, American loses more than another marriage. It loses another building block in the structure of what secures her future: strong, loving relationships based on respect, commitment and integrity. This year alone 1.2 million families will experience the rupturing and fragmentation of divorce. Hearts shattered. Children devastated. Hope lost.
Statistics say it all…
1.2 Million couples across America file for divorce each year.
$112 Billion is the annual cost of divorce to taxpayers
4 Weeks of work time is lost during the first year after a divorce
$150 Billion is the annual cost of divorce to U.S. businesses
America is only as strong and healthy as the integral relationships that make her grow and prosper. Committed marriages establish solid families which build strong communitites. Where marriages are committed to serving Christ and each other, relationships thrive.
There is hope in mist of your crisis, just make God your center peace.
