Marriage Initiative

About The Knoxville Marriage Initiative

A stable, healthy marriage is strongly linked to physical and emotional health and is a fundamental building block of a healthy community. However, Tennessee is one of ten states with the highest divorce rates, and broadly accessible programs for strengthening marriages have been nonexistent in Knoxville.

Statistically, 80-90% of couples seeking divorce never seek professional counseling, and by their second year of marriage, 50% of newlyweds seriously doubt their marriage will last. A majority of couples experiencing marital unhappiness can turn their marriage around with help from the right resources.

The Knoxville Marriage Initiative aims to grow a network of church and community organizations that provide effective and accessible relationship assistance to citizens of Knoxville and surrounding counties. We believe that church and community organizations can provide research-proven relationship assistance to help couples grow a strong, life-long marriage.
