In an era where rising divorce rates and marital infidelity are rapidly becoming societal norms, hundreds of couples met together last month to buck the secular trends of the world with a renewed commitment to God and the sanctity of biblical marriage.
Worldwide Marriage Encounter (WWME), which is active in over 90 countries and exists to give couples a “weekend experience” to recommit their marriages through “techniques of loving communication” centered on God, held its 40th anniversary convention on June 27-29 at the Ontario Convention Center in Ontario, Calif.
"This is a way for us to reinforce the permanence of our marriage vows and the sanctity of the sacrament of matrimony," said couples Tony and Cathy Witczak, who attended the group’s anniversary convention, in a statement.
The event, which gathered over 2,000 participants from around the world, was called a success by WWME which spoke glowingly of a banner proclamation affirming the commitment to biblical marriage that was signed by thousands of people at the conclusion of its anniversary event.
The banner, which included a statement of faith and belief that marriage is an institution existing only between a man and a woman,” featured "Forever Yours" in large print at the top.
WWME, which holds events periodically throughout the country, describes its programs as unique and innovative.
“It's not a retreat, marriage clinic, group sensitivity, or a substitute for counseling. It's a unique approach aimed at revitalizing marriage,” the group says on its Web site.
WWME, which continues to fight daily in its struggle to uphold the sanctity of marriage, is a non-profit organization that uses all its proceeds to finance its programs and give struggling married couples new hope in their lives.
