We've been married since December 1997, a second marriage for both of us, blending six children between the ages of 5 and 16 at the time. We've seen the impact of divorce on virtually every aspect of life. We don't think divorce always has to happen and we want to do our part to help marriages to be strong and healthy. We've had our ups and downs (and still do), but we've learned many things through our journey, and been trained in approaches to help address issues and keep us from going down as far or staying down as long as we once did. We know these same things will help other couples to have a healthy, vibrant, and thriving marriage.
