With a great desire to help reduce divorce, Michael and Harriet McManus drew from that policy and founded Marriage Savers. They developed a “community marriage policy,” which they promote among pastors, priests, and rabbis in U.S. and Canadian communities. They’ve helped religious leaders establish joint commitments to marriage-preparation programs in more than 175 cities, many of which have seen dramatic drops in divorce rates. They also help individual congregations create marriage programs involving mentoring by couples who have successful marriages (marriagesavers.org).
