CELEBRATE THE JOY, is in support of Black Marriage Day, on March 28, 2010.
The stats on black marriage, in the words of the African American Healthy Marriage Initiative, are "crisis-level statistics." While 62 percent of adult whites and 60 percent of adult Hispanics are married, only 41 percent of adult African-Americans are.
There are 23 divorces per 1,000 black couples per year, compared to 19 for whites. The number of unmarried women having children is high for whites and Hispanics as well (25 percent and 42 percent, respectively), but astronomical for African-Americans: 69 percent.
Changing the mindset of African American couples towards marriage is very important. In order to build strong families, you need the proper tool - knowledge. Knowledge of self, your fiance and your expectations of your new life together. Not living up the statistics can be a reality when given the proper tools to do so.
We will touch on different subjects during this workshop. Lasting only 3 hours to give plenty of time for in-depth discussion on those issues that mean the most to you. Done in a Q & A format, there are no right or wrong answers.
- Children & Parenting
- Social Activities
- Red Flag Warnings
