FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
In a society where infidelity and a moral disregard for marriage is running rampant and the media has jumped the gun on reporting that marriage is obsolete the Keep Marriage Visible Campaign is saying, “MY SPOUSE MATTERS!”
Facebook’s new profile structure currently does not allow a spouse who is a Facebook user to link anywhere that is visible (at first glance) on their profile a spouse who is a non-Facebook user. The “old” profile at least allowed you to prominently state that you were “MARRIED” on your profile for the world to see. The Keep Marriage Visible Campaign is campaigning for Facebook to change this glitch in their system and allow any spouse to be listed at the top of the profile in the same manner in which other family members are able to be listed in the sidebar–whether they are a Facebook user or not.
Our solution would be to allow users to include the name of their spouse, but provide no click through link if the spouse is not on Facebook. Simple!
Linda Dominique and her husband Calvin Holland and teach people to love better on a daily basis via their websites: http://www.LoveBetterCamp.com and http://www.ThePluralThing.com. She shares daily relationship tips via her Facebook page (http://facebook.com/lindadominiquegrosvenor). She says, “For us it doesn’t matter what the CNN, The New York Times or TIME Magazine says. In our eyes marriage was created by God to be the ultimate union, a covenant revered by Him that no one should interfere with–not even FACEBOOK.”
In an article titled, “Marriage Works and What You and the Media Can Do to Help It,” she wrote, “Marriage works, but if we don’t start teaching our young children, adults and the media et al to honor and cherish the richness and sanctity of marriage (even in the little things) we will end up with a nation of emotional vagabonds who selfishly think nothing of infringing upon the marriage of someone else via email, text message or social networks like Facebook because they have been conditioned by society to believe that marriage has no real value and so they willingly desecrate it.”
There are a lot of things we can support, however, the Keep Marriage Visible Campaign is urging single and married Facebook users to “LIKE” their campaign page and invite their friends to “LIKE” the Keep Marriage Visible Campaign Page too. On this page you can upload wedding photos or photos of you and your significant other and share/link pro-marriage related articles as well as family and vacation photos. The Keep Marriage Visible Campaign shares that they will continue to tackle other issues beyond Facebook that interferes with the marriage covenant and demand reasonable solutions.
