Marriage Week 2019: 'Recipe for a Healthy Marriage.'

2019’s UK National Marriage Week took place between the 13th – 19th May.  Our theme was ‘Recipe for a Healthy Marriage’ and was all about having the right ingredients for a healthy marriage.  The six ‘relationship ingredients’ we focused on were:


Why forgiveness

Because we are not all perfect and sometimes we make mistakes.

Marriage Week 2019 Resources 


As part of Marriage Week 2019 we offered you all kind of recipes. Recipes are not just for food, but for all kinds of things to think about as you invest in your marriage.

Taster Menus

Marriage and relationship courses and resources are a fantastic way of showing your commitment to each other. To show our commitment to you, we’ve asked our partners to provide you access to some free course material so that you can start investing in your relationship today!

Church Resources

Churches have long recognised the need to invest in marriages. Both of couples in congregations and those in the wider communities that the local church exists within. Investing in marriages strengthens the individuals, the relationships and the community. It helps prevents potential heart-ache, distress and long term damage for both the adults and children involved.
