On this Fifth Anniversary of the signing and enacting of the Macomb County, MI., Community Marriage Covenant Policy, this second Sunday of February is proclaimed, World Marriage Day.
Since Americans never do enough for marriage and family, here's another effort at enhancing this revered foundation of our society.
With Valentine's Day in the wings, Feb. 14th, all the more that the globe celebrates marriage.
Hearts, bird and roses are emblems of love.
In 1981, World Marriage Day began in Baton Rouge, La., with couples inviting their local bishop and mayor to proclaim Valentine's Day as "We Believe in Marriage Day."
More celebrating of marriage will occur March 9th at 3 pm in Big Jack's in Roseville, MI., and also on Thursday, June 19th at 4:45 in the Warren, MI., Civic Center Atrium with countless clergy, marital advocates, and civic leaders, including Warren Mayor Jim Fouts who will address participants after the opening prayer June 19th.
DVDs celebrating family will be produced for airing at this event to show how festive families are today.
The public is welcome.
