Marriage Matters

to you, your family, and your community.

No one goes into marriage with fingers crossed behind their back and divorce papers stashed in the drawer.


Most couples are energized and excited, but they’re almost entirely focused on their wedding day – not their future together. 


Yet, data shows that many people admit they’re not well equipped for the most important journey of their lives. 


But there’s good news! MREC is here to help rewrite the norm and connect the next marrying generation to tools, resources and caring people to help them form and sustain, healthy, lifelong marriages. 


Already married? You’re in the right place to find the encouragement and support you need to help your marriage thrive. 


When you invest in your marriage, you create a powerful ripple effect that impacts future generations.
