The annual ‘Marriage Week’ celebration, initiated in Australia in 2007, will be held from Sunday September 12 to Saturday September 18, with the aim of reinforcing and promoting the benefits/importance of marriage and increasing awareness about the value of pre-marriage and in-marriage education.

Many churches, marriage ministries and Christian broadcasters are taking part in Marriage Week, which celebrates and recognises marriage as:

  • foundational in Gods' plan of creation

  • 'the union of a man and a woman to the exclusion of all others, voluntarily entered into for life'

  • the foundation of families and gave the right balanced environment for children to grow up in
