The Art of Marriage Ops + Applebees Giveaway

Is your marriage important to you?  Do you work daily with your spouse to maintain a close a loving relationship?  A solid marriage happens when both parties take that time to work on each day.  However, if one of the parties is gone from the home for an extend period of time, it makes it that much harder.

It is never easy having a family member in the military.  And it is even harder when that someone is your spouse and they are deployed over seas.  I have always been a part of a military family, but have been fortunate enough that my spouse and my father have never seen the front lines.  Other members of my family, however, have fought bravely for our freedom numerous times.  Being away from your family under such circumstances is hard on the marriage.  In fact, military divorces have increased 41% since 2001.  Hopefully, the number won't increase with our soldiers returning home from Iraq and Afghanistan.  "With the The Art of Marriage Ops blog app we all can help the men and women who have defended our country strengthen their marriages!"  Here is what is has to offer:


  • Spread The Word! Did you or someone you love serve in the military?  Help us spread to word and share the app on your Facebook or Twitter!  Use hashtag #marriageops ! The more people who realize this is an issue, brings us one step closer to helping more families!
  • Donate!  Text OPS to 80888 and donate $10.00 to help our men and women in the military strengthen their marriage by attending an event showcasing The Art of Marriage! Less than the price of two cups of coffee!  
  • Five Date Ideas!  It’s not just military men and women who need help with their relationships. Here are five great inspirational date ideas that will help bring you closer to your partner!


    Sound interesting?  Well check out the widget below and then share it any military families that you know.

    I think it is great that you are trying to bring more awareness to this, family is so important. My father fought in the first Iraqi wars Operation Desert Shield and Desert Storm. Not long after his return my parents unfortunately divorced. It's awesome to see people working to prevent the same thing to happening to families in this generation of war time.
