With 35-40% of all marriages ending in divorce, and only 10% report having a truly fulfilling relationship, is there a way to reverse this dismal trend?
I’m convinced there is.
My wife Sandy and I have a dream that over the next 10 years these numbers will be reversed.
Our vision is to see the divorce rate drop to 10% and to see 90% of all couples engaged in a partnership of mutual healing, growth and positive impact in their world.
We’re not alone in this. We believe this can happen through a growing movement of educational efforts called Safe Conversations that we are a part of. (Let me invite you to click on that link and register for one of my upcoming online Safe Conversations Workshops.)
Also, many of the couples we are helping are energized to share their stories with others, as they have discovered the secret to a truly fulfilling relationship in marriage.
Will you help us by doing your part? Here are some steps to take.
1. Work on your own marriage.
We cannot give away what we don’t have.
You can’t be excited about encouraging other marriages if your own relationship is unstable.
On the other hand, if you are building a stable, secure and safe relationship that empowers you to fulfill your destiny together, then it’s easy believe this could happen to millions of other couples!
And this would drastically reduce the divorce rate.
Many of my client couples have a good marriage they want to make better. So no matter where you are in your relationship it’s important keep growing. Let me help!
2. Encourage other marriages.
Couples everywhere are starving for hope that they can have a satisfying relationship in marriage. By sharing your hope with them, you will be a significant part of what we believe is a worldwide movement.
3. Educate the next generation.
Help us get the message of Safe Conversations into every school and university. Help us spread the word that conflict is not only normal in marriage, it’s also a clear sign you married the right person.
And every conflict represents something new that is wanting to emerge in your relationship – a new area of healing and growth that wasn’t there before.
Unfortunately, in our culture, love is often portrayed as romantic love only, and it conflict is seen as a bad thing.
Help us change the culture in a way that changes the world!
Do you know what will happen if the divorce rate drops dramatically?
We’ll also see a drop in every other social ill!
The marriage relationship is the upstream source for everything that happens in society downstream.
Imagine the statistics of crime, violence and poverty dropping dramatically.
Imagine the increase in creativity, productivity and financial health of our nation.
Foundational to all this is the healing of marriages. So join with us and let’s all do our part!
Thanks so much for your friendship and partnership to bring healing to our hurting world.
