Black Marriage Week
Marriage, Inc. celebrates Black Marriage Week every March. The goal of this week long event is to let our community know that marriage encourages positive and permanent change in the lives of individuals and families.
Black Marriage Week is a week-long celebration to empower the divine institution of marriage. Marriage has always mattered to the Black community. But much of what we hear about marriage in the Black community is a blues song about cohabitation, out of wedlock births, escalating divorces and how “somebody done somebody wrong.”
Marriage, Inc. is working to replace that blues song with a love song of joy and celebration. We want to let the world know that we’re creating a cultural shift in the Black community. We’re encouraging individuals and couples to reconsider the benefits of marriage. We want to show everyone that Marriage Changes Things – for good!
During Black Marriage Week, participating couples are encouraged to wear a special badge and lanyard beginning on the Sunday of that week and throughout the entire week. When asked about the badge, those wearing badges are encouraged to proudly share:
- how long they have been married to their mate;
- why they appreciate their mate; and
- how God has blessed their marriage.
