The Broken Promises Coalition comments on faith and commitment between marrying couples, following an insightful editorial on religion’s role within young couples’ relationships.
Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) August 23, 2012
On August 23, 2012, the Broken Promises Coalition released a statement in response to a Huffington Post editorial about religion factoring into relationships and how faith can impact marrying couples. While there are also some aspects to marriage and relationships that are universal, the coalition believes that this topic is important for all marrying couples to consider.
In the article Ann Brand discussed how she previously never considered herself to be religious despite practicing Judaism her entire life. After a lengthy discussion with her significant other (who is not Jewish), she began to realize just how much religion can factor into a young couple’s relationship, especially if marriage may played a role in their future. Brand goes on to state, “People say love fades eventually and religion is the foundation that makes things easier for a family. But what if in my case, love didn't fade and was instead the force behind a wonderful home? What if raising kids without a structured religion allowed them to grow up in a world where the guilt from their family (or the culture they were raised in) never burdened them from being with the one they loved?”
Broken Promises representative, Clay Darrohn, stated, “The questions that Brand raises in her editorial are extremely poignant. For many people of faith, it becomes an important factor when deciding about marriage and parenthood. We believe that faith has the potential to serve as a considerable obstacle for marrying couples, but we also believe that, regardless of faith – the bond between two people in love who’ve decided to be with each other for the rest of their lives is difficult to break. This is why we believe that it’s important that symbols of this bond should not break either. This belief is why we’re petitioning for retailers and manufacturers of tungsten carbide jewelry to disclose the fact that tungsten carbide wedding rings can shatter and are not indestructible as they are often advertised as being."
The Broken Promises Coalition is currently populating a petition with signatures to demand that bridal jewelry retailers begin disclosing honest information about their products, specifically tungsten carbide.
Broken Promises is a grassroots consumer advocacy group dedicated to raising awareness about misleading information regarding tungsten carbide wedding rings.
