A November 2010 article in TIME reported the results of a poll on marriage conducted by The Pew Research Center. Based on the poll findings, the author concluded:
Marriage, whatever its social, spiritual or symbolic appeal, is in purely practical terms just not as necessary as it used to be. Neither men nor women need to be married to have sex or companionship or professional success or respect or even children.
The foundational principles of Christian marriage are increasingly being challenged in our culture.
Meanwhile, the ballroom dances are enjoying a resurgence of popularity and interest, inspired by movies and television series such as Dancing with the Stars.
MarriageDance combines the beauty and romance of partner dancing with scriptural truth about marriage. The result is a celebration of God’s relationship plan.
MarriageDance believes our Creator made us for adventure, intimacy and joy. If your marriage could benefit from more of any of those, read our blog, visit our program page or contact us for more information.
Love this… thank you for sharing.
Thank you! So glad you found us!
Completely disagree with that author. Marriage is very important for commitment purposes and without it, there may be some kind of commitment but it will never help when major issues happen.
Ali, we disagree with the article’s conclusion as well – but it reflects an attitude that is prevalent in our world. Along with our fellow Christian marriage bloggers, we hope to provide a more positive perspective on the value of marriage. Thanks for joining in the conversation.
This is very inspiring! Something that couples hardly think about it seems 🙂 Reminds me of one of the topics discussed at http://www.ocfilmco.com's recently released documentary film. God bless you!
We’ve been married 51 years, 45 of which we’ve been committed Christians. God took our mess and poured His life into our relationship. For guys that are willing, it’s all about the cross. You can’t really live until you die to self. But WOW…..it’s priceless and worth every effort.
