The Marriage Movement – What Next?

You may want to read the interim statement from a group of professionals working to preserve marriage, The Marriage Movement. The report, titled What Next for the Marriage Movement?, states the good news that divorce is declining slightly in the U.S.; it approvingly describes the many initiatives, faith-based and otherwise, designed to strengthen marriage; and it acknowledges frankly that the members of the organization disagree on whether to permit same-sex marriage.

The heart of the statement, however, is a list of seven priorities for the future. They include subsidizing pre-marriage education and making it easier to get,
adding marriage and relationship education to the public school curriculum, making people wait longer to divorce. and forcing divorcing couples to complete marriage education as a prerequisite to divorce.
