Marry Well was launched by three couples who spent years speaking and writing about marriage, but kept noticing friends struggling to find good opportunities for marriage. When we would cautiously recommend that our friends try using popular dating services, they would come back telling us about their difficulty in finding people who were equally serious about their faith or about pursuing marriages for God’s glory.
We decided -- even though there were 1,500 dating sites already on the Internet, and even though many of them had multi-million dollar marketing budgets – that there had to be room for at least one dating site, that 1) was absolutely committed to honoring God and marriage above everything else, 2) was willing to give away coaching advice even if it meant people would use it to meet and marry people without using our online community, 3) was willing to stay around and offer support for people who connected through our site, but then had questions about how to best move forward and 4) was welcoming to mentors and parents who wanted to join the community in a supporting role.
We’re grateful for all the men and women who have joined this community and continue to praise God for all of those who have shared their engagement and wedding stories with us so far.
