BUILDING STRONG MARRIAGES

About Us

Research overwhelmingly points to the physical, psychological, emotional, social and financial benefits of stable, loving relationships for men, women and children (and our society in general) (DeRose et al 2017; Waite & Gallagher 2000; Lebow et al 2012; McLanahan et al 2013; McLean, D.C., 2017).

Knowing these benefits, MAREAA believes and strongly advocates for the development and maintenance of healthy, committed, nurturing relationships in all their diversity.

MAREAA’s values and ideals support respect, the dignity of all individuals, inclusion, belonging and equality for couples irrespective of age, sexual orientation, cultural or religious background.
