Save Your Marriage Central announces its drive to create a national day to honor and celebrate fidelity to the marital vows and to debunk the myth that an affair is a love story. Governors are already being contacted. Responses are favorable.
Prescott, WI (PRWEB) July 8, 2004 -- Marriages all over the world are being
devastated by the latest Julia Roberts story celebrating her pregnancy with the
husband she "bought" from his former wife in a nasty divorce battle. SYMC
director and marriage coach Penny Tupy deals with the impact on a daily basis.
She's not shy about pointing a finger at the entertainment industry as being
guilty of glorifying infidelity. "When marital infidelity among celebrities is
portrayed as a love story, it demonstrates total disdain for the sanctity of
marriage. We forget that real people, including innocent children, suffer very
real and lasting hurt from these affairs," says Tupy from her home in Prescott,
Wisconsin. Tupy brainstormed a solution to counteract the negative impact, a
national day to honor faithfulness to marital vows.
Marriage Fidelity Day is a celebration reminding us that marriage is a lifelong commitment to remain faithful in mind, body, and spirit to the covenant of marriage. Tupy and a group of volunteers are working to establish September 15th as the day set aside to honor this commitment and to highlight the destructiveness of infidelity. The initiative is well under way. More than half of the governors in U.S have been contacted already with favorable response. The ground-breaking initiative will move into in high gear over the next two months.
Governors receive a copy of the proclamation and a brief letter describing the initiative. The National Director for the initiative, Cindy Wolfe, will personally follow up with each of the governors’ offices to answer any questions and establish a working relationship with them.
SYMC chapters around the country will sponsor the Marriage Fidelity Day Proclamation within their home states. SYMC Chapters are extension of the SYMC marriage advocacy project and coordinate events throughout the year in support of marriage and family.
SYMC is also seeking grassroots endorsement and support for the Marriage Fidelity Day drive from several groups around the country. "Changing the perception of infidelity is not something we can do alone," says Wolfe, "We are reaching out and joining forces with the many other organizations that care deeply about marriage, family and children." Tupy plans to expand these contacts when she attends and presents at the Smart Marriages Conference in Dallas later this week.
Tupy's dream and passion is to debunk the myth that an affair is a love story and to reestablish a commitment to marriage and family. Marriage Fidelity Day is a landmark event in this crusade.
