The United States has the highest divorce rate on the globe by a wide margin. Puerto Rico is number two, but should not be listed as it is a territory of the United States. This is almost 4 times the average.

FamilyLife has established a scholarship program call “Finally Home” that allows all Active Military personnel to attend a WTR for free. Also inactive military personnel qualify for the free registration if they have returned from deployment within the past 18 months. FamilyLife is doing this to reach out to military personnel to help them in their marriage. The divorce rate for military personnel is much higher than the general population due to all the stresses couples face due to separation/deployment.
Please call FamilyLife at 800-358-6329 M-F from 8:00 to 18:00 hrs to register. Share with our Guest Relations Representative that youy are active or inactive military to get registered. This program covers the cost of registration for the WTR. Hotel costs are not covered.

Military Wives Turn to Bible for Marriage Advice is a nice article by Kristin Hall for the Associated Press. So the good news is that when these young wives were challenged they sought help from the only one who counts. Continue reading
Pew Research Center recently released their report on the “State of Marriage based Census and survey data. “In 1960, 72% of all adults ages 18 and older were married; today just 51% are.” One surprising detail is that the trend is across all age groups. The median age of first marriage has also greatly increased, so we will have to wait to see if this is more of a trend to delay marriage. Though from what we have been seeing through our ministries tends to point to a rejection of marriage as an institution. In working with young teen mothers, we are seeing that many are not only saying marriage is not needed for raising a family, but the guy does not even have to be part of the picture. Continue reading

The Washington Post has reported, “Just 10 weeks after their lavish, made-for-TV wedding and less than a month after the wedding special aired, reality starlet Kim Kardashian is canceling her marriage to NBA player Kris Humphries.” She said in a statement. “I had hoped this marriage was forever but sometimes things don’t work out as planned.” Well according to Kim Kardashian forever is 72 days of marriage.
