Couples Vow Recommitment To Marriage

By Aaron Leichman Christian Post Reporter Wed, July. 09 2008 02:27 PM EDT
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.

  1. COH,i was so glad to raed about this post..... "couples vow recommitment to marriage" i was particularly touched by the emphases placed on the marriage based on christian flavour which is the word of GOD; and the unequivocal statement that marriage is between man and woman. only the love of Christ Jesus can save the christian marriage. I appreciate your work. Godbless you.

  2. While that's good news, I am also saddened by the fact that in this day and age, we need to actually fight to uphold the sanctity of marriage.

    I don't think there was a point in history ever when such wickedness of opposition to marriage reigned.

  3. Thank You Luckenzo, you are indeed correct that marriage is between a man and a woman that is the word of God.


  4. I feel you Brother it so sad though but, all we can do is fight for the faith which is the good fight
    Love and Godbless

  5. Praise the Lord and Halleluyah! Marriage is sacred in the eyes of God. It was God which created marriage between a man and a woman and should be entered into as sacred. The devil will pull out all punches to break up marriages especially Christian. We have to stay strong in the word of God and keep praying for prosperity within our marriage. My husband and I continue to pray for our marriage each and every day. We know God brought us together and we know that God has blessed this union. We have our trials and problems and we work them out through God! The only way to keep our marriage strong is to be grounded in Christ. God bless you for this uplifting writing. What a blessing it was to read! I love you and grace and peace to your family! Your writings always uplift me and fill me with joy everytime I visit!
