“Starved Stuff: Feeding the 7 Basic Needs of Healthy Relationships” will be presented by Matt Townsend.
Cost is $5 a person. The program is hosted by Utah State University Davis County Extension and StrongerMarriage.org.
Gov. Herbert has signed a proclamation in honor of the week which runs Feb. 7-Feb. 14. In it he says: “Marriage is an essential aspect of human society because it helps create new families, binds men and women together in a network of affection, mutual aid, and obligation, commits fathers and mothers to their children, and connects children to a wider network of welcoming kin.”
It continues: “A healthy, loving marriage deserves our respect as it provides means for personal happiness, and creates a safe place for children to flourish and to enjoy the full emotional, moral, educational, and financial benefits of both parents.”
He goes on to say: “Marriage breakdown takes a toll on the emotional, physical and financial well-being of family members and communities, and increases the cost to taxpayers for many public human service programs.”
Suggestions for celebrating the week range from celebrating your marriage from the time you have been together to honoring a family member whose marriage has had a significant positive impact on your life.
