HENDERSON, Nev., Jan. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ – Women worldwide are gathering online this Valentine's Day to invest in their marriages by participating in the "Wife S.O.S." program. "S.O.S." stands for "Save Our Ship," and the event will do just that for thousands of marriages on the afternoon of Thursday, February 14, 2013.
This free online event is an all afternoon Marriage Training Extravaganza, featuring inspirational pieces, practical how-tos, relationship coaching, worship music, and live interactive Twitter and Facebook Valentine's Day parties.
The goal is to empower, equip, and energize wives to profoundly and positively impact their marriages for good this year, giving not a tangible gift, but the gift of themselves.
Event hostess Marnie Swedberg says, "Statistics show that two-thirds of divorces are initiated by women, and according to a New Woman's Day and AOL Living poll, 75% of women surveyed have considered leaving their husbands at some point. There is no greater gift a wife can give to her husband or herself this Valentine's Day than her determined, intentional, proactive commitment to making their marriage the best mutual gift it can be."
In the United States, over 50% of first marriages, 67% of second marriages, and nearly 74% of third marriages end in divorce. In addition, the economy has caused financial strain in many homes and CNN reports that these financial pressures are the biggest stresses on marriages in the past sixty years.
That's why wives everywhere are encouraged to participate in the Valentine's Day Training Extravaganza on February 14, to deliberately, energetically, and positively fight for their marriages. During the four-hour online event, guests will be invited to renew their marriage commitment, re-ignite their marital passion, and re-dedicate themselves to a life-long marriage of true love.
"Living with and loving the man you've got is often a wife's greatest challenge in life, but also her greatest gift," says Swedberg, who herself has been married for thirty years. She and her husband have lived through fires, floods, a tornado, car wrecks, a sinking boat, a head injury in the family, business and financial set-backs, and much more. But they are still enjoying each other and committed to making their marriage work. Swedberg wants to help all wives strengthen their marriages by sponsoring this Valentine's Day event.
The public is invited to attend the online event at www.WifeSOS.com. The following presenters will offer the gift of their experience:
- Pam Farrel – author of Men Are Life Waffles, Women Are Like Spaghetti and twenty-five other relationship books
- Vicki Tiede – author of When Your Husband is Addicted to Pornography
- Kathi Lipp – author of The Husband Project
- Sheila Gregoire – author of The Good Girl's Guide to Great Sex.
