Marriage Foundation Set Up in UK

Couples renew their vows during Diocesan Marriage Anniversay Mass
The Marriage Foundation is inviting people to share their experiences of marriage in 50 words on the web. Everything from why you support marriage, to the challenges you've overcome.
   
The goal of the Marriage Foundation is simple: to  increase the rate of marriage and reduce the rate of divorce. To make this happen the foundation, which is based in the UK, and is secular, is mainly depending on cold hard statistics.   

The idea came about from Paul Coleridge, a family law specialist and High Court judge, who was concerned about the high rate of divorce, single parent households and its lasting effects on children and adolescents. 

You can see more about it in a short video on Rome Reports

The Diocese of Arundel & Brighton Diocese has its own Marriage and Family Life Department which is led by M&FL Adviser Katherine Bergin.
