    HULTGREN of illinois in the house of representatives Tuesday, February 12, 2013 Mr. HULTGREN. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize National Marriage Week. I am proud to support this campaign to encourage marriage, reduce divorce rates, curtail poverty, and benefit children.

    Marriage is a cornerstone of society and the foundation for happy, healthy homes and families. The proven benefits of marriage include economic stability, positive health and social advantages, emotional well-being and happiness, and children that perform better in schools.

    This week celebrates love as well as commitment; it is a time for couples to reflect on their vows to each other and look forward to their future years together. National Marriage Week is celebrated globally, and is supported by private organizations and individuals who believe that marriage brings benefits to all people in society.

    National Marriage Week celebrates healthy marriages, and making commitments based on love, trust, and admiration. It is an honor [[Page E122]] for me to be able to celebrate this week with my lovely wife, Christy, to whom I have been married to for 22 years.
