The quality of our nation’s marital relationships will be a determining factor in the destiny of Australia. The strength of families depends on the qualities of the relationships between mothers and fathers. Therefore marriage should be encouraged, strengthened, valued and supported by society and individuals in every possible way as a social good.
Marriage Week is an annual celebration, strategically placed, commencing on the second Sunday in September at the beginning of the Lord’s festivals, to reinforce and promote the benefits/importance of marriage and increase awareness and value of pre-marriage and in-marriage education. Of course there must be continuing recognition of responsibilities for the singles, the single parents/ divorcees and the child within our midst who may be growing up without a mother or father role model.
Marriage will be celebrated, recognising that marriage :
Was foundational in Gods’ plan of creation.
It is ‘the union of a man and a woman to the exclusion of all others, voluntarily entered into for life’.
Seek to promote the value of marriage based on Judeo-Christian scripture.
The foundation of families and gives the right balanced environment for children to grow up in a foundational part of society and thus the nation.
Our own Marriage. Mr. and Mrs. Redback. ❤️1961❤️ “It’s Happily Married Week”, 59 years.
We have actually been together 62 years, 3 years practising before marriage. Your love grows stronger with the passing of years, and does alter its concept. Young love and the activities that go with are beautiful, but of course that does not last forever. We are a bit like old cars things stop working. But if it is only for entertainment don't bother getting it fixed. For example, if the car is still mobile, but the radio stops working, do without the radio. The radio is not essential.
So in old age because of health issues, and things stop working you become more dependent on each other. That creates a greater love for each other. First thing every morning we put our heads together and try to work out what day it is. Usually takes the first hour to sort that one.
Please add your marriage to the list. I know that the USA celebrate Marriage Week in February, as usual we have to be different. But you can join in with us, we can join in with you. Excuse for two parties.
