The Marriage, in the FFWPU called Blessing, is an opportunity for couples to renew or begin their marriage relationship through a new commitment to live purposefully for the world and God. In response to the breakdown of traditional marriage in our world, the Marriage Blessing offers a path to build a world of stronger marriages and healthier families. The Marriage Blessing takes traditional marriage to a higher level of purpose.
Rev. Sun Myung Moon and Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon, founders of Family Federation for World Peace and Unification, began the tradition of the Marriage Blessing in 1960 with their own wedding ceremony. Based on their lifelong commitment to a world of strong marriages and empowered families, the Marriage Blessing has become a worldwide tradition where couples dedicate their marriage to a greater purpose and God. Every year thousands of couples have been receiving the Marriage Blessing across the world.
All over the world, a wedding is considered to be one of the most important moments in a person’s life, along with birth and death. Nevertheless, there is little attention to marriage preparation.
Workshops, availble for young people and couples, help develop our relationship with God, as our Parent, our individuality as a man or a woman and the necessary degree of maturity for marriage.
Workshops and coaching sessions help maintain a sustainable marriage in which mutual respect, fidelity, responsibility, trust, the ability to apologize and forgive, and harmonious sexuality are key elements. Such values represent the basis to overcome difficultes and become a happy couple.
Workshops guide parents to transform their family into a school of love, the optimal setting for the children to develop their character, their hearts and personalities as well as their abilities and skills in order to fulfill their objectives in life.
