Welcome to Marriage Savers
Marriage Savers is a Proven Way to Increase the Success of Marriage,
Reduce Divorce Rates, and Provide a Better Environment for Children to
STEP 1: We Help Establish Community Marriage Policy® (CMP) programs in
cities and towns throughout the United States and Canada, in which
pastors, priests and rabbis join together to strengthen marriages with
the conscious goal of pushing down the community's divorce rate.
WHY? So far, more than 200 cities and towns in 43
states have created Community Marriage Policies and divorce rates have
fallen an average of 17.5%, and cohabitation by a third.
STEP 2: We Establish Marriage Savers Congregations in
churches and synagogues throughout the United States and Canada, in
which mentor couples are trained to help other
couples prepare for a lifelong marriage, strengthen all existing ones,
and restore troubled marriages. WHY?
This strategy can virtually eliminate
divorces in the local congregation.
STEP 3: We Enrich
Existing Marriages and Restore Troubled Ones. Mike & Harriet McManus
regularly conduct Marriage Enrichment Weekends on weekends at local
churches. They also train "back-from-the-brink" couples who once
considered divorce, to create a "Restoration Marriage Ministry."
