There is a rising trend in divorces all around us. How do we keep the sparks going? I'm no expert in this area, but a successful marriage requires effort on the part of both parties.
Last night, I attended a private dinner for bloggers by Ms Anita Fam, head of Marriage Central Advisory Board.
Marriage Central is a one-stop resource point by the National Family Council to promote stronger, healthier and happier relationships. It provides couples with creative ideas and useful advice on issues ranging from preparing for marriage to keeping love evergreen over the years. It hopes to remove the stigma from marriage counselling.
Over a scrumptious home-cooked dinner, we chatted about life and marriage, and Anita shared her thoughts and plans on how Marriage Central will champion marriage wellness in our society.
The Marriage Central website was revealed. It will provide resources and referrals and physical resource locations to help strengthen marriages. It will also provide a conducive and friendly environment for couples who wish to know more about the marriage preparation and marriage enrichment programmes, as well as martial counselling services that are available in Singapore.
In conclusion, couples need all the support from their family, relatives, friends and the community to internalise the right values and develop the necessary skills for a strong marriage.
