ROSWELL, Ga. – In Roswell, the week leading up to Valentine's Day holds as much tradition as the day itself – it's "Marriage Week."

Held Feb. 7-14, the organizers of Marriage Week hope to promote the benefits of marriage, as stronger marriages bring economic stability to the family and provide the best environment for children to thrive, said Neville Billy, of Our Marriage Matters.

"Marriage has proven to work," said Billy, founder of Our Marriage Matters Network, a Roswell-based nonprofit organization. "It makes people happier, makes a family stronger, builds more economic security and provides emotional security for children."

With the divorce rate so high, Billy says it is important to maintain a marriage through constant work.

Our Marriage Matters Network encourages married couples to celebrate each other with a free kick-off – a date night pre-dinner mini presentation with how-to's for a happy and healthy marriage on Saturday, Feb. 15 at 4:30 p.m. at the Roswell Suites banquet room at 907 Holcomb Bridge Road, Roswell. Attendees will receive a 25 percent discount gift coupon to some of Roswell's finest restaurants.

Visit www.ourmarriagematters.org to register for the event.
