Candle-light Dinner Most Popular

The interest in Marriage Week is unbroken in Germany.  Once again, approximately 20,000 women and men participated in Marriage Week events.

One out of five Marriage Week events was a romantic dinner. Many churches picked up the idea of a blessing service for couples besides concerts, theatre evenings, receptions, seminars, ballroom dancing, movie nights and book presentations. Also the MarriageWeek@home idea became more popular this year. More than 600 Marriage Week paper bags with ingredients and ideas for a cosy evening at home were given to young parents who would not have been able to attend an event due to a lack of babysitters.

One of the special features of this year’s campaign was a tour through Germany by marriage book authors Susanne and Marcus Mockler, who spoke on seven evenings in seven cities from North to South.

After 10 years, Marriage Week has a firm place in the calendar of events in many places. Numerous parishes, associations and restaurants used the awareness of the campaign for their own events, without being organizationally connected to MarriageWeek Germany.  That is also an indicator demonstrating that MarriageWeek has reached the center of society. Our goal for Marriage Week in Germany is to continue to inspire married couples to invest in their marriage, to accept each other and to keep love alive.
