Did you know that the average cost of divorce in America today is $30,000[1]?  Who can afford that expense in today’s economy?  And the future financial picture can look even uglier than the divorce itself.

“Costs” of divorce are not limited to money.  Other costs in this life-altering process include, but are not limited to:

  • Emotional toll
  • Loss of time invested
  • Immediate and long-term financial effects
  • Loss of companionship
  • Loss of practical help
  • Emotional and psychological impact on children

From many different angles, the various costs are huge.  

Marriage, Inc. offers you an alternative –a way to save money AND your marriage! Partnering with local marriage counseling professionals, we are offering counseling services at a rate significantly discounted from normal fee plans: six one-hour counseling sessions at $50 per session for a total of $300.
